Google Stadia, Refunds Begin

Google has started compensating Stadia users: Colleagues from the United States from the edge And they don’t just report the first reports. The company has also updated the official support page containing frequently asked questions about the procedure. We read, also in Italy, that at this initial stage Stadia will automatically attempt to refund “all purchases of games, additional content, and subscription fees other than Stadia Pro made through the Stadia Store”.

Google says that those who have made less than 20 transactions will receive an email each, while those 21 and older will receive one email with a full address.

Refunds will be made to the original payment methodand, if they fail (for example, if the card has expired/locked), an email will be sent to the Stadia account that made the purchase with instructions to set up a new payment method. As for hardware-related refunds (in essence: a gamepad and possibly a Chromecast), there are no more specific updates, even if the January 18 deadline remains in place.
