If you haven’t jumped on board with Google Cloud print, you may want to. Similar to Google Drive, Google Cloud Print is an easy, time-saving application that lets you print from anywhere, from any device such as your PC, Android,  iPhone, or a tablet. All it needs is wifi access to connect with both your printer and Google account. Read on to get a quick rundown on how Google Cloud Print works and the best wifi printers to set it up with.


What is Google Cloud Print?

Via Google Cloud Print

 

Google allows you to register your printer to your Google account, which then lets you print using a compatible network device like a phone, tablet, or PC. The technology also lets you share your printers with anyone you choose and lets you print without having to install device drivers (which send documents fully transmitted to Google). You can print from any Windows application if a cloud printer is installed on the device.

While you can print from some other printers as well, a cloud ready printer is best and will give you optimal results with the least effort.  Below, we look at some of the best cloud ready printers on the market today.
