Printing with Chromebooks

Printing with Chromebooks
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #48 • View online
Hello,
In the early days of Chromebooks, few printer manufacturers supported these devices. There were no drivers and Google had no choice but to develop Google Cloud Print. It was an elegant solution for printing from any device, including mobile ones.
For many years, Cloud Print remained the only option on Chromebooks. Until Google added to Chrome OS support for the Linux printing subsystem. This made Cloud Print’s days numbered, and Google will discontinue it in a few weeks.
How can you print from your Chromebook now? The article below presents some alternatives.
