Smart phones are becoming smarter with each passing day. They are slowly taking the places of personal computers. Google cloud print is testimony to this fact. Google cloud print encapsulates a genial idea.
It allows you to print from your smart phone. If you can use smart phones to read emails, then why can’t you print attachments from the phone itself? Well, this problem has been addressed and now iphone and Android smart phone users can print from a remote location using Google cloud print.
Let us take a closer look at the whole process. To use Google cloud print, you must have a Google account. Then you need to attach a particular printer to that specific account. Whenever you want to print something, you can print it from anywhere.
For example: say you are going for a meeting to your office. You have an important presentation and you need to print out some statistical information that you just received via email on your smart phone.
The traditional method to go about this would be to reach your office, get hold of a PC with a printer, connect to the internet, log in to your email account, download the information onto your computer and then finally print it. However, with Google cloud print you can print the information on your way to the meeting so that the document is ready for you even before you reach the office! This is really the last word in printing.
Also, many people can share a single printer without complicated local networks and the like. You do not even need to have drivers! There is more – when you connect a printer to your Google account – it remembers the printer’s specifications and thus lets you what types of files you can print on a particular printer.
The Google cloud print service can be downloaded from the Android market but you need to an Android version of at least 2.1. Older versions of Android are compatible with Google clod print.
The service is not at all difficult to use. It is better than Bluetooth in a thousand ways. For example: say you are in New York and you want to send a document to a friend in LA. The conventional method would involve attaching the document to an email and sending it to your friend. You friend will then have to download it to his computer and to print it. But all this has changed with the Google cloud print service.
Now you can simply associate your friend’s printer with your Google account and the documented will directly appear at his residence or office in the printed form. Wireless printing is now possible over thousands of kilometres. Google Cloud print has definitely taken printing to a completely new level.
There are many more uses of this technology. Google cloud print is a boon for businesses. It is almost like a personal assistant. The only difference is that a personal assistant makes mistakes while this program does not. Just add your Google account to the Google cloud print service and make use of this wonderful feature.
