If you want to print files on your mobile phone before, you have to send them to your desktop by e-mail or other means before printing them, but now you don't have to bother so much. With Google's Cloud Print feature, you can print anything directly from your Android smartphone or tablet, even very old models. Come and experience it.

Step 1: It's better that your printer supports Wi-Fi

This means that even if your computer is turned off, it can also be connected to the printer. Because the printer can connect directly to your Android device without the help of a computer after accessing Wi-Fi.

When the printer is ready, search your printer model by visiting the cloud printing site. Once found, click the link in the description file to find the setting option. Maybe different printer settings will vary slightly, it is OK as long as we follow the instructions.

It doesn't matter if it doesn’t support Wi-Fi.

As long as you turn on your computer and access the Internet, your printer can also be searched by cloud printing services.

1. Open your computer and run Chrome. Only Chrome browser is available, you need to use it to do the pre-set of cloud printing;

2. Open the menu in Chrome, log in to your Google account, and make sure you use the same account as your Android device;

3. Enter the "Setting" option under the same Chrome browser menu, scroll down and click "Display Advanced Setting", and then select "Manage Google Cloud Printing".

4. Click "Add Printer", find the printer you want to connect remotely from your Android device, and then click "Add Printer Submenu" again.

Step 2: Set up Android device

The setup process on Android devices is actually very simple. Find the Google Play store and download and install the "Google Cloud Print" application. The essence of the app is a plug-in that prints photos of Google's own services (such as albums) and then allows you to manage your printing commands.

In the Android 4.4 KitKat version, this plug-in will appear as a stand-alone application. It runs in the background of KitKat and is notified when you have a print command initiated.

Step 3: Start printing

From now on, you can start printing the things in an album or Chrome browser. Simply click on the "Print" command in any application menu, and a window will then pop up. Then you select the printer from the drop-down option and make various settings, such as paper size and color. Click "Start Printing" and the content to be printed will be sent to the printer.

At the same time, cloud printing through Android devices is not limited to photos and web pages. By cooperating with third-party applications, it can even print short messages, contacts, mail attachments and any documents stored on the device. If your Android device defaults to Firefox, you can also use cloud printing services. Google has a list of applications that support cloud printing.
