On my S20 I can still create a Wifi-direct connection but it no longer let's me select files and send them to my other devices.  This apparently broke in the latest update.
Samsung please fix this.  No, I do not want to use Nearby Share.  I want Wifi-direct to work the way it is supposed to work.  Quit disabling current features because you want to rollout some new way of doing something like Nearby Share.  No reason to break existing functionality just because you release something new.
PLEASE FIX WIFI-DIRECT !

Hi! Wi-fi Direct is embedded in Bluetooth since the last update. You just have to send the files through Bluetooth, then the Galaxy will automatically chose between Bluetooth or Wi-fi Direct, accordingly to the file's size. If the file is big, you will see the Wi-fi Direct's sign (working) at the notifications panel.

Do not forget to turn both the Wi-fi and Bluetooth on.
