Is it possible to search text within large PDF documents in SharePoint Online like we can in Google Books?

Yes it also crawls the page number of PDF files. In the below screenshot(unfortunately in Dutch), we can see the PDF preview opening in Word Online showing the page number.

Here, Pagina = Page. In my PDF document, there are 19 pages, so its previewing the 1st page of 19 pages.
