HP Printers Now Support Google Cloud Print

HP is bringing its first-generation of cloud-ready printers to market. In a recent announcement, the company said Google Cloud Print users can print directly to any HP ePrint-enabled printer from any Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smartphone. With this functionality, users simply need to add the unique email address of their HP ePrint-enabled printer to their Google account in order to enjoy the ability to print via the cloud.

HP ePrint-enabled Printers First to Support Google Cloud Print

PALO ALTO -- HP today announced that Google Cloud Print users can print directly to any HP ePrint-enabled printer from any Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smartphone.

HP’s portfolio of web-connected and cloud-aware printers for home and business are the first to support Google Cloud Print out of the box.

The combination of Google Cloud Print and HP ePrint printers makes printing from any web, mobile or desktop app that supports Google Cloud Print more intuitive, accessible and useful by eliminating the need for a print driver or PC connection to the printer. Apps supported by Google Cloud print currently include Gmail for Mobile, Google Docs for Mobile and Chrome OS, and will expand to include third-party apps.

“Making it easy for our customers to print where and how they want is a top priority for HP,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “With HP ePrint and cloud-aware printers, you get the best experience printing via Google Cloud Print.”

Users simply add the unique email address of their HP ePrint-enabled Photosmart, Officejet or LaserJet Pro to their Google account, which provides the ability to print easily and securely from Google apps to the selected HP printer.

“Users are rapidly migrating to web and mobile apps, and Google Cloud Print brings full-featured printing capabilities to these apps,” said Mike Jazayeri, director, Product Management, Google. “We are excited that HP has brought the first-generation of cloud-ready printers to market. While cloud printing is possible with any printer that is connected to a PC, users can achieve a more streamlined, intuitive experience by printing directly to a cloud-ready printer.”

To the cloud! Now that IEEE has or is making a standard for it (Cloud) it should start growing or becoming even more inclusive rather quickly I would think. That is a good point as well Der Meister, I remember when (if they ever stopped) people used to whine about spam coming to Fax machines. So I imagine it will come to your printer now. Talk about wasting ink, that would suck. Anyway as far as printers go I am very happy with the Canon photo printer I have had for a while. HP ink is just such a rip off compared to almost anyone else.
