Contact an Android app's developer

Third-party developers, not Google, create most apps on Google Play. The developers are responsible for their apps’ support and to make sure the apps work well for you. They’re the only ones who can resolve issues inside the app. Contact an app developer if:

  • An app you’ve downloaded doesn’t work.
  • An in-app purchase or subscription wasn’t delivered, doesn’t work, or wasn’t what you expected.
  • You want a refund for an in-app purchase or subscription which was unavailable through Request a refund.
  • You have an issue with retrieval or reset of your progress or save file in an app or game.
  • You want to learn more about how to use an app or game.
