Google Cloud Print

Contributor(s): Colin Steele

Google Cloud Print is an online service that lets end users print to compatible printers, regardless of location.

Google cloud remote printing works by transmitting data from an endpoint device to a Google server and then to the selected printer, all over a secure Web connection. 

The service is available through the Google Chrome browser, Google's mobile apps such as Gmail and Docs, and other supported iOS, Android, Windows and Mac apps. It is also the default printing method on Chromebooks.
