Google Cloud Print From Your Android Phone
August 24, 2011

The Android as an open source phone is extremely easy to print from and there are a bunch of ways to do it. Unlike the iPhone which has a pile of terrible printing apps, the Anroid has Cloud Print which is incredibly well rated and extremely popular. Cloud Print allows you to print not only from email, but from anything directly from your directory. This app is so effective because it uses the Google Cloud Print system which is a new and consistent way to print from wherever you are to your home printer.
To use this app you first have to set up Google Cloud Print. Google Cloud Print is a feature on all Gmail accounts that connects any printer you have on a computer to your Google profile. This allows you to print from anywhere on any computer or device you can connect to Gmail which includes your Android phone.

To be able to use the Cloud, the first step is to get into your account and set up the printer or printers you want to use. This is best done with the Google Chrome Browser.

Setting Up Cloud Print

First step is to go into the settings and select the options menu.

Here you just need to look for the "Under the Hood" tab on the top left of the window.

Near the bottom you will find Google Cloud Print. Here just click on manage printers and you can open the printer tab.

This will give you a list of all the printers you want to use in the "cloud" and you select one of them. Now you have your printers set up and you can print from your devices.

Printing From the Android

The First step is to download the Cloud Print app from the Android Market. It can be found here.Printing from the app could not be more simple once you have your printers connected to your Gmail account and the app ready. Simply sign in to Gmail from your account and you can start printing! Open up the app and you enter the directory screen where you can navigate the entire memory of your Android.

From here you just select whatever type of file you want and hit print. They will be automatically sent to whatever printer you selected from those connected to your Gmail account.

Many desperately need an extension to deep-six google doodles! I've read about setting flags, etc. but nothing seems to work. Later: Well, I seem to have done it, but I'm not sure how. It involved setting every flag suggested on the www, as well as multiple Chrome restarts and at least two 5 minute power downs. Good luck to all. It can be done.

I find ghostery better than ublock as it can be paused to get on a movie site than will ban you if you have an adblocker and once loaded you can unpause it and only have to sit through the first ad, also savefromnet to downlod youtube videos, and videodownloadhelper to save other videos from 123 and yes movies etc.
