Google has officially opened up a short period of time where Android users can request a refund of a purchase application or game from within the Play Store.
The new refund policy is now official. Google has updated their Google Play support guidelines, as reflected on the official support site, and the 2-hour window is now clearly stated as the window of opportunity for anyone who wishes to get a refund for a paid app or game they purchased within the Google Play Store.
This is a change for the better, especially for anyone who has been burned by the previous 15-minute refund window that Google initiated in 2010. It’s a far cry from the original 24-hour refund window, though. As noted by Android Police, this change has been in place for a little while now, but Google has made it official as of September 10.
