Hey sweetheart, I need to print something from my smartphone!
This tech request was from my wife and it reminded me of a tech tip I provided years ago that is more relevant today.
Since most of you use some type of Google service daily, why not include the ability to print just about anything from anywhere with the Google Cloud Print option.
Anyone with any type of Google account, can simply configure their printer connected to their computer so that it’s available through the Internet.
This will allow you to print from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets but it also allows you to send print jobs from your work PC to your home printer or vice versa.
In fact, you could even invite others to print to your printer, if they needed to, like a friend that’s having a printing emergency.
Google’s Cloud Print will work with both cloud-ready and traditional printers and also allows you to send print jobs from a variety of apps and devices.
