This is an era of Cloud Print. The technology to print has gone way easy. You just need to say “Ok, Google, print my document… there.” The printing job will be done provided the printer is connected to the internet and you are logged into your Google account.
However, the cloud print also sees some clutches like print driver may break or print queues pause.
For the newbie, it is to understand that cloud print needs internet connection, account setup and thereafter printer sharing. Once everything is configured properly, the printing is highly reliable.
However, even if a problem persists, follow some below mentioned tips:
Keep devices updated, connected
The first and foremost thing to check is whether both the devices are updated and well connected. Also, turn off and turn on the printer, check the printer has the toner or the ink, and have you rebooted the device.
How the printer is connected
Don’t forget to check the printer’s network connection settings. It is important to assign static IP address as it will make access to administrative settings of the printer easier.
Register printer with Google Cloud Print
Don’t forget to connect your printer to the Google Cloud Print Service. The process varies for different printers like HI ePrint printer first requires configuring ePrint service and thereafter to submit ePrint email address.
In the case of other printers, the login to its administrative panel is required.
With the use of G Suite the printer can be connected to any Google account.
Printer should be shared to Google account
