gpGoogle changed the policy for app refunds from 24 hours to 15 minutes a few years ago, but Android users eventually adjusted to it. There is still a less prominent way to seek a refund after the 15 minute window if you have a legitimate gripe – it’s tucked away in the Play Store order history. However, at some point recently, Google changed the way these refund requests worked.

The blog iTechTriad posted this as a PSA and a potentially serious bug on April 8th, and we’ve spent the last several weeks digging for details, eventually confirming it as a new Google policy.
