No way to pair the Oculus Remote to the new Rift S?

    I was figuring this might be the case, and unfortunately it appears so.  I was hoping it would be like a gamepad.  An option at least.  I still really enjoy Farlands and showing people new to VR.  It's also great for watching movies.  I think the little remote is really nice and convenient.  Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any way to pair it with the new headset.

    Yeah I have not used the Xbox controller in about 2 years, the remote I used pretty regular.

    This is one of a few shortcomings the S has for me... I loved that little remote. :(

    Same here. We made an entire solution (professional use) based on interacting with the remote and now it doesn't work.

    Also in general I don't see that much of improvements in terms of the graphics quality and audio is much worse (and not loud enough). In several areas the Rift S feels like a step down.
