Google launches Cloud Print for Android, iOS

Google announced a service called Cloud Print last year that enables users to print wirelessly and remotely from within Gmail and Google Docs. Though the service hasn’t garnered much media attention, it shows a great deal of potential and it removes some of the barriers associated with wireless printing.¬†On Monday, Google announced that it is making the Cloud Print service available on its HTML5-based Gmail and Google Docs mobile sites. Users of the iPhone, iPad, Android 2.1+ devices and other devices with browsers that support HTML5 will soon be able to access the service from anywhere there is a data connection. Unlike Apple’s wireless AirPrint solution, Google’s Cloud Print does not require devices to be on the same network in order to utilize the service. It also doesn’t require a special printer like AirPrint, though a Windows PC is required to configure the service. Cloud Print for mobile will be rolled out to users in the U.S. this week as a beta service. More →
