Description

Google Cloud Print is a service that enables a user who has a Google account to print from applications compatible with Google Cloud Print via a smartphone, tablet, or computer connected to the Internet. Unlike conventional printing from a computer, Google Cloud Print enables you to print without using a printer driver. For example, if you want to print an e-mail or files that are attached to an e-mail, you can print just by using an application compatible with Google Cloud Print. You will find your printouts when you go to the machine.
