What can getActiveNetworkInfo() be replaced with since it was deprecated in API 29


According to the Android docs https://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/ConnectivityManager.html#getActiveNetworkInfo() getActiveNetworkInfo() was deprecated, can anyone suggest what method it can be replaced with?

private boolean isNetworkAvailable() {
        ConnectivityManager manager = (ConnectivityManager) getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE);
        NetworkCapabilities capabilities = manager.getNetworkCapabilities(manager.getActiveNetwork());
        boolean isAvailable = false;

        if (capabilities!= null) {
            if (capabilities.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_CELLULAR)) {
                isAvailable = true;
            } else if (capabilities.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_WIFI)) {
                isAvailable = true;
            } else if (capabilities.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_ETHERNET)) {
                isAvailable = true;
