Google Cloud Print

Generally, you'd want to use Google Cloud Print compatible printers. The full list of Cloud Print ready printers is available here.

If you're stuck without one of these printers (i.e. a classic printer), you've still got options:

Before connecting your classic printer, confirm if you have:

  • Google Chrome
  • Windows or Mac computer

And if you’re using Windows XP, the Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3). Then, follow the steps below to enable the Google Cloud Print connector:

  1. Open Google Chrome. In a new tab, open chrome://devices You’ll see a list of devices already registered with Google Cloud Print, and new devices available on the network.

  2. Under "Classic printers,” click Add printers. You'll see a confirmation that Google Cloud Print has been enabled.

  3. To learn more, click Manage your printers.

To connect classic printers in a business or school environment, use the Cloud Print Connector service on Windows or Linux.

After adding your Cloud Print ready printer, use the Google Cloud Print app to start printing

In versions of Android newer than 4.4, the app isn't necessary:

  1. Open the page you want to print in its app (Photos, Chrome, etc).
  2. On the app, click Options.
  3. Select Print.
