Had the same situation, from my research I learned the update in the android software no longer works with the VR headset. I tried high and low and was pretty irritated over it.

Dude I
found a solution for GearVR on S20



 



"I had
the Gear VR headset with my S8+ and I read that Oculus did not support the
Galaxy S20. However, there is still a workaround if you want to use VR with the
S20.



You only
need to install the 'Cardboard' and 'Google VR Services' apps from the Play
Store.



Aa a web
browser in VR, I suggest 'VR Browser' from Vuplex. It allows multiple windows
in 360. You need a Bluetooth keyboard or any standard keyboard (I have a USB-A
keyboard that I connected to a USB-C adapter and plugged that adapter directly
in the Gear VR headset. I could not connect the Gear VR controller through
Bluetooth.) However, VR Browser does not show media in 360. Gizmo VR Video
Player handles it well. It goes well with Youtube too.



Even
easier: Google VR Services is enough if you find a VR video on the web that you
wish to view. When that video is playing, you can view it on your phone as a VR
video OR you can switch to a headset mode."
