Solutions To Setup Google Cloud Print

Are you looking for the right procedure for how to setup Google Cloud Print service? Then you have reached the right page.

The Google Cloud Print (GCP) service was one of the wireless printing solutions that allowed users to perform the print from anywhere. But, Google discontinued this printing service on December 31, 2020. So, even if your printer supports GCP, you can't use it. However, for the Chromebook users, Google has suggested an alternative method for Google Cloud Print. It is the 'ChromeOS native printing' function. To use the ChromeOS native printing function, you need to add your printer to the Chromebook. The below section explains the same in detail.

ChromeOS Native Printing

  • Initially, make sure that you have completed your printer's hardware setup, such as unpacking, loading paper, installing ink cartridges, etc.
  • Now, connect your printer to a wireless or wired network.
  • After connecting your printer to the network, connect your Chromebook to the same network.
  • Now, turn on the printer followed by Chromebook. (Note: Make sure to keep your printer turned on during the ChromOS native printing setup).
  • Go to your Chromebook's Settings section.
