Google has finally released an Android App for their Cloud Printing service. After completing the inital setup to connect associate your Google Cloud Print connected printer with the app, you can then use the ‘Share’ option within applications such as Gallery or Google Drive to print your documents over the net. The Cloud Print app also allows you to track the status of your jobs.
There’s a pretty wide range of Cloud Print ready printers that connect directly to the web and don’t require an attached PC to work; But if you haven’t got compatible printer there is a pretty handy guide over at the Google Support site which outlines how to connect your normal everyday printer to the Cloud Print service.
The only drawback for me at this stage is that the Android GMail app doesn’t include a ‘print’ option in the menu, nor can you share an email to the Cloud Print app. It’s a pretty nifty little tool though and sure to add some functionality to your life if you require printouts.
How often do you use your printer?
