File Processing Status

Google will process your files to make them available on our platforms. You’ll see the processing status of your files on the Content tab. For more information on the processing statuses, read about book status message explanations.

Content Reviewers

You can check how your book appears on Google Play by adding content reviewers. They'll be able to read the book on any supported device without having to purchase it. You can grant a book to content reviewers even before it's available for sale. Learn more about the content review.
