Did you know that you can use the Glyph Lights Interface as a secret Glyph music visualizer on Nothing Phone 1? In this guide, you’ll learn how to turn on the Glyph-lighting music visualizer on the Nothing Phone 1.
Meanwhile, you can program Glyph to sync with the beat of the music playing through the Nothing Phone speakers (1). For those who have used Windows Media Player before, it is somewhat reminiscent of those older representations. Both locally uploaded tracks on your smartphone and audio streams from services like Spotify or other programs are compatible with this capability.
These are by default made to light up for alerts and may also be used as a fill light for cameras or to show the battery’s state of charge. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they can do more.
The Nothing Phone (1) Glyph lights are fantastic and have a lot of features, such as Flip to Glyph and Charging Meter. However, there is a not-so-obvious function that is tucked away in the Glyph Interface settings. This is the Music Visualization function, and a report by XDA Developers has revealed how to activate this secret setting.
What is the Glyph Interface on Nothing Phone (1)?
The Glyph interface, a distinctive pattern of LEDs on the device’s back, is the main factor driving the buzz surrounding the Nothing Phone (1). Under the clear rear glass, there are five LED stripe pockets.
Here’s what you can do with the Glyph interface:
- Visual Ringtones: For a visual cue, the Glyph interface will resemble the ringtone you’ve set on your phone. In the event that you missed your ringtone, this may be helpful.
- Unique Caller ID: By selecting from a variety of presets for various contacts saved on your phone, you may alter how the Glyph interface appears when a certain caller is received.
- Messages: For SMS, WhatsApp conversations, app updates, and other general notifications you get throughout the day, the Glyph interface may act as a dedicated notification LED.
- Charge Level: When connected in, the bar-shaped LED at the bottom will indicate how much charge is left in your phone. Simply move the phone around to see the LED display the battery level.
- Wireless Charging Indicator: The Phone (1) is capable of both wireless and reverse wireless charging. The LEDs will flash once to indicate that wireless charging has been enabled and is currently taking place when you place the phone on a charging station or place your headphones on the back of the device.
- Fill Light for Portrait Shots: In addition to the flashlight that is already built into the phone, you can utilize the Glyph interface while capturing pictures or videos to brighten the subject.
How to Enable Glyph-lighting Music Visualizer on the Nothing Phone 1
Although at the time of writing, it’s a hidden function that necessitates you to pass through a few minuscule hoops, there’s a very strong chance that this option may soon become a part of the default settings for the main settings. Here’s how to make it work:
1. Create a new contact with the name “Abra” by opening the Contacts app.
2. Now, go to the Settings > Glyph Interface and tap Ringtones.
3. Tap Add a contact and choose “Abra”, the contact you just created before.
4. You can pick any of the Nothing ringtones when requested to select a ringtone for the specified contact on the next page (tennis, coded, scribble, etc).
5. When you return to the main Glyph Interface settings after assigning Abra a ringtone, you will notice that a new Music Visualization option has become available.
6. Tap on it to enable it.
The LED lights will now pulse to the music when you play music via the phone’s loudspeakers and turn it face down. Try it out; it’s very neat.
That’s it. These were the steps to the steps to enable the Glyph-lighting music visualizer on the Nothing Phone 1. When you play music through the phone’s speakers, Nothing OS will now use the glyph lights as a music visualizer. Both offline musics played using programs like VLC Media Player and streaming apps like YouTube Music are compatible with the capability. If you want to completely remove the Music Visualization option, just delete the ‘Abra’ contact you made. You can also disable the functionality by turning off the toggle in the Glyph Interface section.
