Test major changes to your edition

We recommend you create a test edition using the steps below to test major changes to your edition once it's live. This test edition will only be visible to the edition's managers, giving you the opportunity to preview and interact with it the way your readers will.

To more quickly test changes to your test edition, we recommend turning off caching.

To test major changes to your edition:

  1. Sign in to Producer and create a new edition;

  2. Add the section(s) that you'd like to test. Learn more about creating and edition sections.

  3. Click 'Publish' in the left menu, then click 'Android Testing' or 'iPhone and iPad Testing', depending on which device you'll be using for testing.

  4. Install the Google Play Newsstand app for Android or iOS, then sign in to the app on your phone or tablet with the same login you used to create this edition.

  5. Open the Google Play Newsstand app and subscribe to your edition. Once subscribed, you can find your edition under My Library > News. If you don't see it, sync Google Play Newsstand by tapping the three dots in the upper right hand corner and hit Refresh.

  6. When you're satisfied with your test edition, you can begin the process of publishing and distributing this content to your readers.
