With the application of the manufacturer
First you need a printer compatible with WiFi technology. Many brands offer this technology (Canon, Epson, HP ...). Then simply go to the settings of your smartphone and look for Impression. By default, you should not find anything so tap "Add a service", a window of the Play Store will open and you will only have to search for the application of your brand.
You will then see the brand in the list. Tap it, turn it on, and presto, you're done. Enter the document you want to print and, logically, press "Print" in the options.
With Google Cloud Print
Let's start with the configuration
The PC you usually use with your printer plays an important role. Make sure it's turned on and connected to Google Chrome, otherwise the paper will print later when you turn on your PC.
Then you have to use the technology Google Cloud Print. Your computer will bridge your smartphone and printer with your Google Account and Chrome browser.
You have to use Google's technology Cloud Print.
Launch Chrome on your PC, click on the menu icon in the top right corner and choose Settings. At the bottom, click Show Advanced Settings. Find the Cloud Print section and enter the configuration menu.
Choose Add Printer, and follow the directions to add your printer.
Then you have to find compatible applications
On your smartphone or tablet, download an application that supports Google Cloud Print. This is the case of Chrome, Cloud Print and PrinterShare Mobile Print, for example. They will allow you to print easily from various applications.
I chose Cloud Print which is very easy to use. Remember to go to the settings and enable the option in the print services. You can then add on the app your Gmail account and it quickly recognizes the associated printers. You can even print something in PDF on the Drive.
Now when you open the sharing options on any document, browser, photo, message etc, you will find the Print option. Eventually, you may find it going through the menu of sharing, you should then find Cloud Print. Then let yourself be guided by the directions.
It is also possible to print files using NFC technology . It's much simpler but it means that your smartphone and printer are compatible with this technology. You will then need the application of the manufacturer (Samsung Mobile Print in the case of Samsung), then you will simply put your smartphone on the NFC tag of the printer and voila.
There you go ! Has this system worked for you?
