Users will now be able to print directly from any mobile Google app to their e-enable HP printer.

Press release:
HP today announced that Google Cloud Print users can print directly to any Eprint enabled Printer from any Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smart phone. HP’s portfolio of web-connected and cloud-aware printers for home and business are the first to support Google Cloud Print out of the box.

The combination of Google Cloud Print and HP ePrint printers makes printing from any web, mobile, or desktop app that supports Google Cloud Print more intuitive, accessible and useful by eliminating the need for a print driver or PC connection to the printer. Apps supported by Google Cloud print currently include Gmail for MobileGoogle Docs for Mobile and Chrome OS, and will expand to include third-party apps.

“Making it easy for our customers to print where and how they want is a top priority for HP,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “With HP ePrint and cloud-aware printers, you get the best experience printing via Google Cloud Print.”

Users simply add the unique email address of their HP ePrint-enabled Photosmart,Officejet or LaserJet Pro to their Google account, which provides the ability to print easily and securely from Google apps to the selected HP printer.

“Users are rapidly migrating to web and mobile apps, and Google Cloud Print brings full-featured printing capabilities to these apps,” said Mike Jazayeri, Product Management Director, Google. “We are excited that HP has brought the first generation of cloud-ready printers to market.  While cloud printing is possible with any printer that is connected to a PC, users can achieve a more streamlined, intuitive experience by printing directly to a cloud-ready printer.”
