Google Cloud Print is a new technology that connects your printers to the web. Using Google Cloud Print, you can make your home and work printers available to you and anyone you choose, from the applications you use every day. Google Cloud Print works on your phone, tablet, Chromebook, PC, and any other web-connected device you want to print from.
Google Cloud Print works with all printers, but for the best printing experience can be received if you have a Cloud Ready printer. You can connect a printer to your Google Cloud Print account in seconds, and immediately start printing to it.
Google Cloud Print allows you to share printers with friends, family, or coworkers as easily as you would share a Google Doc file - perfect for visiting guests looking to print a flight boarding pass. From the Google Cloud Print management page, it only takes a single click to share printers that you own with trusted individuals. You can also track print jobs on your shared printers, and modify or revoke sharing rights at any time.
