Using Google Cloud Print

Using Google Cloud Print

Google Cloud Print is a service that enables a user who has a Google account to print from applications compatible with Google Cloud Print via a smartphone, tablet, or computer connected to the Internet. Unlike conventional printing from a computer, Google Cloud Print enables you to print without using a printer driver. For example, if you want to print an e-mail or files that are attached to an e-mail, you can print just by using an application compatible with Google Cloud Print. You will find your printouts when you go to the machine.
When registering the machine or when using Google Cloud Print to print documents, you must be able to connect the machine to the Internet. You are also responsible for paying all Internet connection fees.
You may not be able to use this function in some countries or regions.
Google Cloud Print does not support printing from IPv6 addresses.
To use Google Cloud Print, a Google account is required. If you do not have one, access Google Web site to create your account.
