Cloud print is not a new term for Chrome users and for those who follow Chrome OS news. For many, this is the printing of the future. Google today pushed one more button on Cloud Print making it truly “On the go” printing solution, and truly “cloud” computing.
Google Mobile Team announced Cloud Printing for mobile phones today. Highlights from the blog post follows.
Imagine printing an important document from your smartphone on the way to work and finding the printout waiting for you when you walk in the door. Just open a document in Google Docs or an email in Gmail in your mobile browser and choose â€œPrintâ€ from the dropdown menu in the top right corner. You can also print certain kinds of email attachments (such as .pdf or .doc) by clicking the â€œPrintâ€ link that appears next to them.
This feature will be rolling out today and tomorrow for English speaking users in the US and will work on most phones that support HTML5, such as devices running Android 2.1+ and iOS 3+. To get started, youâ€™ll need to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. This step requires a Windows PC for now, but Linux and Mac support are coming soon. You can learn more at the Google Cloud Print help center.
Start Printing guys ! 🙂
