Google trims return period for defective movies, books, and TV shows from 120 to 65 days

In a odd turn of events, Google has decided to reduce the return window for defective movies, books, and TV shows bought in the Play Store to 65 days. Originally 120 (or unlimited for books), this change is interesting to note with the impending holidays (and hopefully an influx of Google Play gift cards).

UC Browser is massively popular in India, with over 500 million installs on the Play Store. But just two days ago, the app was removed from the store. Now it appears that a setting in the browser itself, rather than rumored data theft or misleading promotions, is the reason it has been removed.

Google Play Store shows a new Notifications section for some users

It appears that the Play Store team is testing another new feature in the Android app, though you may like this one more than the new tab bar that's been rolling out to more and more devices. In the side menu of the Play Store, some users are seeing a new Notifications section, right below My Apps & games.

Tapping on it opens a dedicated Notifications screen, where both of our tipsters have only seen the below "You're all caught up" graphic. It appears that the screen will be used to show you "notifications about your favorite apps and games," though what that exactly means, I'm not sure.

While Google provides its own tracking and anti-theft service through Android Device Manager, some users prefer third-party tools. One of these is Cerberus, a powerful and customizable anti-theft app that has been around for years.

LastPass unaffected by Google's accessibility app purge

Last week, Google began sending out emails to Android app developers regarding their use of Accessibility APIs. The intended purpose of that functionality is to assist disabled users, but it is often used for other functionality (to overlay content, fill in text fields, etc) by apps like LastPass.
