Google Launches Cloud Print For iPhone And Android

Google has rolled out its Cloud Print wireless printing service for mobile devices.

In a blog post, Google explained that the new feature will allow users to print e-mails and compatible documents, like PDF and DOC files, directly from iPhones and Android devices.

“Let’s say you need to print an important email attachment on your way to work so that it’s waiting for you when you walk in the door. With Gmail for mobile and Google Cloud Print — a service that allows printing from any app on any device, OS or browser without the need to install drivers — you can,” Google said.

In order to use the new Cloud Print feature, users will have to download a special beta version of Google's Chrome web browser from the Cloud Print website.

Once users have registered a printer, they can then select the print option from the drop-down menu located on the top-right corner of the screen.

The Cloud Print feature is only compatible with Windows PCs for now but Google has said that support for Linux and Mac computers will be added soon. The feature is currently only available in US English.
