Google Cloud Print

January 25, 2011 by USA Post 

Google Cloud Print, Google has unveiled Cloud Print from the channel last year’s Chrome Dev build, and the search engine giant is moving ahead again with the release today of Google Cloud Printing from the Gmail for mobile application for the iPhone and Android operating systems.

You can now send e-mail and Google Docs to print to a printer connected Cloud from your smartphone, simply by opening a file in the mobile browser and choosing “Print” from the dropdown menu in the application update.

Since we have not seen materials compatible printing Cloud coming to market, you’ll still need a host computer running the operating system Google Chrome to pair with your printer. The function will be deployed to users in the coming days and works on most phones HTML5 support.

Google (GOOG) is currently deploying its Cloud printing services to clients who want to print Gmail e-mail, document or a PDF file to their printers via the Internet. The process is fairly simple on the client side (which also includes a device that can read Gmail). It becomes much more complicated on the printer side.

First you’ll need a Windows PC (oh irony!). You’ll need to install a special beta version of Chrome browser for Windows, which includes print proxy software. This cannot please your guy if you’re at work.

Mac and Linux will be supported in the future but for now, it runs on PC only.

Once you’ve gone though the installation process, print e-mail becomes quite simple. Simply click on the link next to print a document or pull-down menu option menu. Google routes that print the document to your PC running Chrome browser via the Internet.

Of course, this impression is rudimentary; you will not be able to Tabloid magazine headlines, at least for the foreseeable future.

Google has promised suppliers of printers would print Cloud native Google in their blog earlier on the issue. For now, none has materialized. However, during the HP (HPQ) presentation (31:37) you can see they are gearing up for Google Print Cloud.

If Google expects companies to adopt the ChromeOS that Cloud used for printing, they need to get printer vendors on products and shipping carton.
