Around a month ago, we reported that Google had seemingly changed the refund window for paid apps and games on the Play Store to two hours. We tested our theory extensively, and 2 hours was the figure we landed on repeatedly. Now, the change is official: Google has updated the refund policy for paid apps and games on the Google Play support site to reflect the change to a two-hour window.

Comcast is finally acknowledging Android Wear's existence with an update to its Xfinity X1 Remote app in the Play Store. It now includes voice and touch controls on your watch that can be used to change channels, start recordings, and more. It cannot be used to navigate the labyrinthian nightmare that is the Comcast support line.

We saw Google Voice integration go live last night, but it contained a number of issues which this update is expected to fix. Yet as exciting as this is, what's more immediately striking is the new visual redesign.

What's New

With the amount of smudging this post required, I feel like I've been working on classified documents. The new version of Hangouts plasters your email address absolutely everywhere. It's not an issue when using the app, but it does make for some rather swirly screenshots.

Update: Hangouts 2.3 is now rolling out to devices in stages. If you rather not wait, we can help you download it manually. And as it turns out, this Dialer just links to a tab within the new Hangouts app. It is not a separate, standalone piece of software.

Hangout's Google Voice integration is finally happening. We started seeing functionality merge into Hangouts overnight, but there remain a few kinks to work out that we're hoping an upcoming app update will fix.

Remember Grooveshark? It's OK if you don't - after all, the controversial music sharing app hasn't been available on the Play Store for more than two years after it made its amazingly brief debut. But users can still get the app as an APK download on Grooveshark's site, and last month they were thrilled to find that it supported Google's Chromecast streaming gadget. Until today, when Google unceremoniously blocked it from accessing Chromecast features...

Lyft Plus seats riders in a vehicle capable of transporting up to six passengers at once. The service launched in San Francisco several months ago, expanding the number of people Lyft users can share a ride with. Now Lyft Plus is expanding out to the rest of the supported markets across the country. According to a recent post on the company's blog, the offering will appear inside the mobile app starting this week.

Update: Aaaaaaand it's live. You can download the latest version of Netflix here. It looks like it's on a slow rollout, so don't be surprised if you can't get it right it away.

Enhanced integration with Chromecast, including a new "Post-play" experience to easily continue watching at the end of TV episodes.

Confession: I watched four 90-minute episodes of Sherlock in a single sitting, thanks in no small part to Netflix's auto-advancing "Post-Play" feature on the web.

Autodesk's mobile offerings for Android are almost always impressive or useful, often both. From SketchBook to Pixlr Express, the company has consistently provided Android users with great apps. Today, there's a new entry in Autodesk's catalog that lives up to that reputation - 123D Catch. In a nutshell, the app lets users create 3D models of real objects using just their smartphone camera.

To get started, the app suggests capturing 20-40 photos all around your chosen object, most at even level with the object, plus some from a top angle.

There's some sort of thing going on today—an announcement from a company called "Apple." Yeah, I've never heard of it either. Apparently they'll announce a phone and some other stuff that doesn't run Android. That's cute, and I wish them all the best with that. In the meantime, you can occupy yourself with the app and game sales for the bestest platform in the world—Android.
