HP ePrint-enabled Printers: First to Support Google Cloud Print

[HAPPENING] HP insisted to give consumers more options to print. Not content with just allowing you to send a print job to a printer via email, now you can print directly within Gmail for Mobile, Google Docs for Mobile and Chrome OS. Yes, print directly from within the app. No need for connection to printer. Some setup is required of course for your app to identify the printer.

You have a HP ePrint-enabled printer? Try it!



SINGAPORE, April 1, 2011 – HP today announced that Google Cloud
Print users can print directly to any HP ePrint-enabled printer from any
Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smart phone. HP’s
portfolio of web-connected and cloud-aware printers for home and
business are the first to support Google Cloud Print out of the box. 

The combination of Google Cloud Print and HP ePrint printers makes
printing from any web, mobile, or desktop app that supports Google
Cloud Print more intuitive, accessible and useful by eliminating the need
for a print driver or PC connection to the printer. Apps supported by
Google Cloud print currently include Gmail for Mobile, Google Docs for
Mobile and Chrome OS, and will expand to include third-party apps.  

“Making it easy for our customers to print where and how they want is a
top priority for HP,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Imaging
and Printing Group, HP. “With HP ePrint and cloud-aware printers, you
get the best experience printing via Google Cloud Print.”
Users simply add the unique email address of their HP ePrint-enabled
Photosmart, Officejet or LaserJet Pro to their Google account, which
provides the ability to print easily and securely from Google apps to the
selected HP printer.

“Users are rapidly migrating to web and mobile apps, and Google
Cloud Print brings full-featured printing capabilities to these apps,” said
Mike Jazayeri, Product Management Director, Google. “We are excited
that HP has brought the first generation of cloud-ready printers to market. 
While cloud printing is possible with any printer that is connected to a
PC, users can achieve a more streamlined, intuitive experience by
printing directly to a cloud-ready printer.”
