What is the definition of Google Cloud Printing

Google Cloud Print is a new technology that connects your printer to the web. With Google Cloud Print, you can use your home and office printers via your daily use apps for yourself and those of your choice. Google Cloud Print works on mobile phones, tablets, Chromebooks, computers, and all other connected devices that you want to print from.

After installing Chrome on your system and connecting to your printer, you can use this printer with Google Cloud Print from any computer, mobile phone, or other device anytime, anywhere. Specifically, when you activate the Google Cloud Print Connector in Chrome, the web or mobile application can use the cloud print service to automatically obtain this printer and use it for printing.


Cloud printing was initially used in conjunction with the ChromeOS system, but Google also plans to promote the technology for other platforms. The ChromeOS device is not yet on the market, during the test phase of cloud printing, it can only perform tasks through a printer connected to a Windows system. The following picture is a very graphic explanation of how cloud printing works.

Google Cloud Print supports cloud printers that can connect directly to the network and set up without a PC. For existing (legacy) printers, you can connect to Google Cloud Print via the Google Cloud Print interface in the Google Chrome browser, as long as you are connected to a Windows computer or Mac that can access the Internet.
