Just yesterday, we learned Sony would be offering a new remote for owners of its NSZ-GS7 Google TV box for $50. The remote is identical to the original save for a new microphone shoved inside for use with Google TV version 3. We didn’t know it would only take a day for people to begin receiving upgrades, though, but that’s exactly what our friends at are reporting.

Alongside general bug fixes and performance improvements, you can now use voice search (again, thanks to that remote), Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go, and the new PrimeTime guide feature Google introduced a while back. The upgrade should be hitting your device on its own, but users should be able to go through the usual channels to check for themselves if it hasn’t shown up yet. Let us know if you’re seeing it in the comments below.
