How to Upload PDF and EPUB Files Into Play Books

Ever get stuck at the bar waiting for your friends to show up? That’s when I usually whip out my tablet and start catching up on reading. And since Play Books lets me upload PDFs and ebooks I’ve purchased elsewhere. I’ve always got something new to read on hand. It’s easy to get your stuff in the cloud. So easy that I’m ashamed to admit that I only recently realized this was possible. Go into your account, navigate to Play Books, and select My books. Then, click on the Upload files button in the top right-hand corner. From here, you can choose files to upload from your computer or the Drive.

The upload button lives on the main page of your Play Books account.

Thus far, this feature works only with PDF, EPUB, jpeg, tiff, and png files. Files must also be no more than 2GB, with no DRM protection.

You can enable the uploading of PDFs from your Android device, too.

This neat feature works in the Play Books app, too. All you have to do is enable PDF uploading in the Settings.
