Previously, call recording on Nothing devices required using the default recording option in the Google dialer, which alerted participants about the ongoing recording. While some reports acknowledge the potential for misuse, discreet call recording can be beneficial in situations where capturing a conversation without alerting the other party is necessary.

Nothing emphasizes that this feature is intended to empower users in potentially undesirable situations. Additionally, Pei hinted at upcoming updates to the notifications panel on Nothing phones, though specifics remain undisclosed.
