    Would anyone be able to post the APK for Voice Search, I have the Sony NSZ-GS7 running the latest firmware but don't have the voice search option. I'm unable to download from the play store due to region restrictions.

    Thanks !

    Hi. Is this the GTV Voice Search app that you are referring to?

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...SwyLDEsImNvbS5nb29nbGUudHYudm9pY2VzZWFyY2giXQ..

    I believe that you shouldn't have to download the Google TV voice search app to your NSZ-GS7 because that functionality should be included with the latest v3 GTV update.

    If you have the recent GTV v3 update then you should be able to use voice search with a bluetooth headset, the new Sony GTV remote w/mic, or you can download the following GTV Remote app to your android device (to use your android device for Voice search):

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...NvbS5nb29nbGUuYW5kcm9pZC5hcHBzLnR2cmVtb3RlIl0

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also you can try using Able Remote for voice search.

    Download the Able Remote Google TV app to your Sony NSZ-GS7:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...9tLmVudGVydGFpbGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLnR2cmVtb3RlIl0.

    and then download the Able Remote app to your android device:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...iY29tLmVudGVydGFpbGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLnJlbW90ZSJd

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is a link to the Google TV remote app APK in Dropbox:

    OK I came across the following recent thread (see link below) on Google+ about this issue. From the link below scroll down to the thread on April 10th started by Brian Doran that reads:

    "Brian Doran Apr 10, 2013 - Sony (Gen 1 & 2)

    Does anyone know the steps to get voice search working? When I go to this page it says I have zero compatible devices. I have a Nexus 7, VZW Galaxy Nexus, Logitech Revue, and Sony NSZ-GS7. "

    *The solution mentioned in that thread was as follows:


    "Juan Ayala Apr 10, 2013

    You have to either pair your nsz-gs7 with the new remote with mic or with a Bluetooth headset. As soon as you pair the devices your google tv will prompt you to reboot the system in order to complete the "installation" and then it will upgrade the google search by itself. without pairing the GTV with any of those options you cant install the app, you can not even side load the app.


    Brian Doran Apr 10, 2013

    +Juan Ayala that is exactly what I did - paired a BT headset and everything else worked. What I don't understand is why this doesn't happen without a pairing. The search interface itself is much better with or without voice. Thanks all"

    Thanks CatfishRivers. I was hoping the app would negate the need for a Bluetooth headset, however I have gone out a bought one and now voice search is working (including using the the Google TV Remote app).

    There's no need for the APK for me anymore.
