Google Cloud Print for Android is released
Printing should be easy, press print and you’re done. It never seems to be the case though. Especially if you’re trying to print from a mobile device. In the past Google Cloud printing has been a matter of setting up your printer and pc and then relying upon third party apps to get the job done. Well Google have gone and released their own app now.

Download the latest release of the official Google Cloud Print app. With Cloud Print for Android you can:
* Print from any compatible Android device to any Google Cloud Print connected printer
* Share a picture or a document from apps like Gallery directly to Cloud Print
* Track the status of your print jobs
Printing from Android has never been easier.

You’re still going to need a compatible printer connected to a PC with the relevant software installed, it’s just using the Google app things should be a little easier.

    I hate printers. The printer industry is a nightmare for compatibility – always has been. Plus I’ve never quite figured out why they are the only people who get away with not supplying a cable to connect to your computer, when absolutely anything else you buy these days does.

    Airplay was quite a revelation in some ways, simply because it forced at least a few printer manufacturers to put their drivers IN the printer, instead of having some horrible bloatware sitting on your PC/phone slowing everything down. In this day and age there’s absolutely no excuse for any printer to have any sort of proprietary installable driver on the client end. Printing should be as easy as clicking a print button, maybe choosing how many copies, paper type, mono/colour, etc. It is like this on Apple devices now – and I have to say, I like it. I presume this Google thing will act like the software on the AirPrint printers, as an intermediary between your Google apps and your actual printer drivers. Glad somebody else is doing something about this at least.
