New phone doesn't respond to the gear vr set

I recently bought the new galaxy s21+ and tried to use my old gear vr set with but it didn't work. i tried to look it up but couldn't find anything about more recent galaxy phones. Note: i had the s8+ and it worked with it.

Hey there! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Gear VR has been discontinued and phone compatibility does not extend past Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e. You can still visit the Oculus Store and check out a number of Gear VR compatible experiences, but they will not work on your S21+. We understand this outcome is less-than-ideal, but we're thankful you reached out to us for info. Best wishes!
