Printing made simple.
Google has developed a near omnipresence that has come from having some of the brightest minds, best ideas, and deep pockets.
The company’s production of hundreds of different services and tools means that it is probably offering a lot of things that people don’t know a great deal about.
Google Cloud Print is one of those services.
This service was created to allow any Cloud-Print aware application across web, desktop, and mobile, on any device in the network cloud to print to any printer. The clever part is that Google doesn’t have to create and maintain printing subsystems for all the hardware combinations of devices and printers.
The benefit for users is that they don’t have to install device drivers.
Google Cloud Print was initially released six years ago and it integrates with the mobile versions of Gmail and Google Docs, it is also listed as a printer option in the print preview page of Google Chrome.
