You Now Have Two Hours to Get a Refund From Google Play

Earlier this month it started to appear that Google had switched its Google Play refund policy from just 15 minutes to two hours. Now the company has set that change in stone. That means that you now have a full two hours to ask for a refund if you purchase an app or game and decide later that it’s not what you were expecting.

As usual, you’ll be presented with an “uninstall” button inside of Google Play instead of a “refund” button after the two hour window has closed. The changes should help encourage folks to buy applications without fear that the app won’t live up to expectations. A game, for example, might look awesome in Google Play but then perform terribly on a specific phone, and now you’ll be able to test it long enough to find out.

The changes have actually been in effect for a while now, but now they’re official on Google’s support site. The switch was first noticed by¬†Android Police.
