When you restore your new Android, the “Set up my Device” step receives a new Fast Pair UI.

It appears that the Set up my Device procedure has been given access to a Fast Pair UI to help speed up the process of transferring data from an older Android device to your new phone.

We don’t know precisely when this change occurred, but if you set up an Android phone from scratch or one that has recently been restored, you will be given the option. In our case, the option to restore via the Set up my Device notification pop-up has been replaced with a recognizable Fast Pair-style UI that is typically reserved for Bluetooth devices and headphones while setting up a recently reset Pixel 3 XL.

You can only see this new UI on an nearby Android device if you decide against wireless restoration. In the past, a notification would appear at the top of your screen requesting you to restore. It is simple to disregard this as a routine message. This usually implies that if you do not utilize a USB-C connection to connect your existing and new devices, you will need to perform the Set up my Device command in Google Search for dependable pairing and content restoration.

The pop-up even shows a tiny preview of the device that is requesting to be set up with the name above, as seen in the screenshot above. On devices running Android 12 or newer, there is also a sizable Set up button that will adhere to Material You’s Dynamic Color theming. Overall, it’s a minor but significant improvement that will help Android become even more cohesive in the future. Additionally, all on-device setup procedures are made familiar and more difficult to ignore.
