Description

Learn how to print from Chromebook or other devices running Chrome OS on your cloud-ready printer.

 

After December 31, 2020, Google Cloud Print will no longer be supported.

Solution

Google Cloud Print™ is a service that connects your home and work printers to the web. Because your printer is connected to the web, you can print to it from anywhere. 

Note To use Google Cloud Print, you need a Google account and you'll need to register the printer with Google Cloud Print in advance.

Printing from Chrome OS

Currently, to print with your cloud-ready Canon printer with your Chromebook or another device running Chrome OS™, the only supported method is Google Cloud Print. Using Canon print apps on your Chrome OS device to try to print with your Canon printer is not supported.

Note LAN (Local Area Network) connection with the printer and internet connection are required to register the printer to Google Cloud Print.

Google Cloud Print Setup

Select a model in the dropdown options below for information about how to set up Google Cloud Print.

  1. Open the Chrome browser.

  2. Type chrome://devices and press Enter.

  3. Under "Classic Printers," click Add printers.

  4. In the "Printers to register" section, select the printer you want to share, then click Add printer(s).

  5. To check if your printer was added, click Manage your printers.

 To let someone else print from this printer, or to print from this printer on a Chromebook, you’ll need to share the printer.
