Though we are living in a virtual world, where every transaction is done with click and tap, sometimes we just can’t avoid the physical exchange of information. Yes, we are talking about hard copy, i.e. print.
We keep sending and receiving info like mail, photos, videos via various channels; but some physical documents can be inevitable. Here is a trick to print any document from your Android phone or tablet with the help of Google Cloud Print.
This Google Cloud Print is in beta version; you can add Classic Printer or Cloud Ready printer. Better to add the latter one.
The simple method is to add your printer to Google Cloud Print. This will allow you to access that printer from anywhere you are; while you are configuring your printer to cloud print, make sure that you are using a computer that is connected with the same Wi-fi network as your printer.
How to Print from Android Using Google Cloud Print:
Step #1: Launch Settings in Chrome
Step #2: Click on Show Advanced Settings.
Step #3: Click on Google Cloud Print.
Step #4: Now click on Manage.
Step #5: Under the ‘Classic printers’ option, you will see ‘Add printers’ button. Click on this button.
Step #6: Enter your Google log in id and password to connect.
Step #7: You are now on the page of ‘Printers to register’. Select any printer to add. Finally, click on the Add printer(s) button.
Now the printer will be available from anywhere.
Pre-certified older printer wouldn’t work with Google Cloud Print; though you can use the printer with a trick. Check out this link for more information.

Step #3: Tap on Print icon.
Your connected printer will start printing the document.
