Printout from your Android Mobile
Android mobiles are the best because of the wonderful features that they carry in them. If you have your word documents or any picture saved on your Android mobile and you wish to take its printout then here is how to do it. Even if you don’t have a WIFI-enabled printer still you can take print your documents easily by linking your printer with your google chrome account. Interesting it seems, here is how to do it.
Connecting to Google Cloud Print
As said above most printers are capable of printing through Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, but not everyone has a printer that supports this and also some users just like the idea of running it all through the cloud. That’s where Google Cloud Print comes in. By registering your printer, you can connect it to the internet. From there, you can operate it from anywhere so long as you have a good connection. You can then print from Android phones or tablets
Though most of the printers are capable of working through Google Cloud Print some don’t. Here is the list to check out which of the printers work with Cloud Print.
Now launch Google Chrome on your computer.
Log in to Google Chrome if you’re not automatically logged in.
Click the Menu button represented by an icon showing three horizontal lines or three little dots if you’re running a Chromebook at the upper-right corner of the window.
Go to Settings and click Show advanced settings.
Scroll down to the Google Cloud Print section and click Manage.
There you click add Printers You will be taken to a shortlist of all available printers. Just check the ones you want to add and click Add Printers. It should detect your printer, and the task is done.
