Nothing OS 2.5.3 update for Phone 1

Nothing OS 2.5.3 for the Phone 1 features New Recorder widget with discreet call recording. This allows you to record calls without announcing to the other party they are being recorded. This was the most asked feature by the Nothing community.

Carl Pei confirmed it in one of his Tweets. This feature will be rolling out to all Nothing devices across the globe. However, it goes without saying that restrictions may be made in some countries, like the United States, where two party consent is required for call recording in some regions.
