I just uploaded an eBook I bought directly from the publisher to my Google Play Books account and went to search for some text in the book only to see the following text come up in a tooltip when I hovered on the search magnifying glass icon...

Search (Unavailable for uploaded books)

search unavailable for uploaded books

What kind of nonsense is this? Is this some resentment that I didn't purchase this thing directly through them? Is search a service only for books purchased on GPB as some kind of perk?

  • Same problem here. Ridiculous. Did you find any solution/alternative? – user11946 Oct 24 '18 at 12:08
