Print from Chrome with Google Cloud Print

You can make your printers available to you and anyone that you choose using Google Cloud Print.

If your wireless printer says that it's Cloud ready, follow your printer manufacturer's provided instructions or see setup information for Cloud-ready printers. Otherwise, follow the steps below.

Note: Google Cloud Print isn't available for Chrome version 50 and above on your iPhone and iPad.

Connect your wireless printer

  1. Turn your printer on.
  2. On your Windows or Mac computer, open Google Chrome Chrome logo.
  3. In the top right, click the icon you see: Menu Menu or More More.
  4. Click Settings and then Show advanced settings.
  5. Under "Google Cloud Print," click Manage.
  6. If prompted, sign in with your Google Account.
  7. Select the printers you want to connect and then click Add printer(s).

The printer is now associated with your Google Account and connected to Google Cloud Print. You can print to this printer whenever you're signed in with the same Google Account on your Chromebook.

Print from Chrome and Chromebook
