Migrate from Cloud Print

Google Cloud Print will be deprecated in December 2020.

  • Before the end of 2020, we recommend that you find an alternative printing solution for your Chromebook.
    • Most Cloud Print printers will still work with Chromebook’s built-in printing system. Follow the steps below to set up your printer and find out if it's compatible with your Chromebook.
  • On January 1, 2021, Google Cloud Print will no longer be supported and devices across all operating systems will not be able to print using Google Cloud Print.
  • You will still be able to save to Google Drive Drive after January 1, 2021.
