Google Cloud Print

Google Cloud Print is a Google service aiming to enable any application (web, desktop, mobile) on any device in the network cloud to print to any printer[1] – without Google having to create and maintain printing subsystems for all the hardware combinations of client devices and printers, and without the users having to install drivers to the client. [1]

Google introduced Cloud Print in April 2010, as a future solution for printing from Google Chrome OS.[2] Then they made the design document and a preliminary version of the source code available.[3][4]

Applications can print through a web-based, common print dialog (web UI) or an API. The service then forward the job to the printer registered prior to the service. A new kind of printer will be able to directly connect to Google Cloud Print, current printers will have to connect through a proxy server.[1]

Google Cloud Print reached beta stage on 25 January 2011.[5] As current printers cannot accept input from a cloud service, Google Chrome 9 contains a "Cloud Print Connector" – the user will only be able to use Cloud Print while the connector is running.[6]

Google Cloud Print was first enabled in Google Chrome's development channel; in other builds the service can be enabled through about:flags.[6]
