Nearby Sharing integrates with the Android Share Sheet, instead of an unfamiliar interface, it’s instantly recognisable . You won’t get lost or confused, it’s simple and consistent with the current Share Sheet implementation.

When sharing a file, the Share Sheet will morph to show any nearby devices underneath, you can then simply select the person or device you want to send your file to. On the receiving device, you simply have to accept the transfer, which can appear as a notification or when toggling the notification quick toggle. Without accept the transfer, the process will simply fail, leaving you to start or try again.
