    How to check the download status after tapping the ‘Download’ button in android?

    I am new to android device and Google Play Store. I liked an android app and I wanted to download it. But I cannot see an option to know the status of the downloading inside the Google Play Store in the android device. Please let me know how the download status can be seen from my android handset.

    Hello Guest,
    You can check the download status very easily. If you are using Google Play Store, then the status bar is visible on the "About App" Screen after you press the download button. If you happen to press the back key while downloading the App, then also there is no problem, just relax.! You can pull down the notifications menu and you can see the download% there. Thank you, hope my solution would be helpful to you.....! :-)

    In the top of the Menu on right Screen you will see an arrow downwards,thats nothing but denotes that some file is getting downloaded. So just drag the arrow down then it will show how much download has been completed and the remaining Portion. Its very simple. so first check for the Arrow, if you can see that then you can confirm that the download is started.

    don't worry.. your app will still be downloading in the background..
    to view the download progress.. you can slide down Notification bar on home screen..
    or in Google Play Store, download progress will be visible on About App..

    Hi,
    You can check the download status by two methods that is there will be an application in the application drawer by name "Downloads" either you can open that by pressing the Apps button from any one of your Home screen and then check the download status of the file that you are downloading. There is also another method from where you can check the status of the Downloading files that is by opening the browser application from which in pressing the menu key you will get a menu in that select the option as "More " there you will find an option as "Downloads" from which you can check the status. Also you can check the status of downloading by pulling down the notification drawer and there you will find an notification of the downloading file select that it will lead you to the downloads application.
    Hope this Helps.
