Google Cloud Print

 

Are you a mobile worker and sometimes wish you could print something to your printer at your home or office so it is sitting there waiting for you when you get back? Google Cloud Print is a technology that allows you to print over the web from anywhere, including your phone, to any printer, according to Google.


I have been testing it out and if you have a Google Cloud Print enabled printer you can print from Chrome back to your printer remotely and so far it has been working great for me. Printing from Excel, Word Etc… maybe a little more tricky but so far I have found that I can Print the document to PDF, drag the PDF to Chrome and then Print it to my office printer. While this is not straight forward it does work with minimal extra effort. I am pretty happy so far with this solution. I recommend checking it out if you have a need, you can learn more at https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/ and if you need help getting this setup reach out to us at MT-Consulting.
