Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced that it is bringing Cloud Print to the Windows platform. The search engine company has launched both a driver as well as a service, which can now be downloaded from its website.
For those who’re new to Google Cloud Print, it’s a technology that connects your printer to the web. You can make your home and work printers available to you and anyone you choose. You can issue print commands from any supported applications like Gmail, Google Docs, and more. Cloud print makes printer sharing a very simple process.
Google Cloud Printer driver for Windows
Today, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) goes further and has launched the new Google Cloud Printer driver for Windows operating system making it possible to issue print command from any of your cloud printers, and best of all, Chrome browser is no longer a requirement. You can now issue print command from any Windows applications like Adobe Reader, Microsoft Office and more.
The second tool that Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced is the Google Cloud Print Service for administrators. This means that admins can now connect existing printers to Google Cloud Print in their organization, business, schools, and anywhere.
Easily share any printer from Windows
The cloud print feature was available from a long time for the Chrome browser, but not surprisingly, as people spend a lot of their time in their browser and mostly print from there. But now with this new addition, you can now easily share any printer from Windows. You can also share a printer with anyone by simply publishing a link.
If you’ve got an Android device, then you can use the Cloud Print app in Google Play which allows you to print your documents from your Android device. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) says that they’ll continue to evolve “Google Cloud Print to make printing simple and easy.”
