Google Cloud Printing Coming to Android in Next Couple of Days

Google Docs and the mobile browser version of Gmail will see an update allowing for cloud printing in the next  couple of days.  This new option lets you print documents or emails from just about anywhere as long as your printer is hooked up to Google Cloud Print.  To check for the option on your phone, open up a Google doc or a Gmail message from within your browser and hit the drop-down menu to see if you have a choice to “Print.”

According to the Google Mobile Blog, the feature will be available on “most” Android phones running 2.1 and up.

Update:  We’re hearing from a lot of you that the option is already available.  Yay!

Cheers Michael!

    Another example of a released product thats not yet ready. My Logitech Revue should have been released as beta too, with pricing for that matter. Im not seeing any option to print from moble docs on my android. Its frustrating too to see the released pictures are iphone pictures as well.

    Happy to see this. I had been working on a .NET application to run on a computer to wait for files via Dropbox and print anything that came into a specified folder, but was running into issues with the latest version of Acrobat reader (imagine that)… this should be much better.

    Now all we need is an offline mode for Docs and I will gladly get rid of OpenOffice.

      I use GDocs currently and have never dabbled with other Doc apps – Any suggestions for better ones that GDocs.

    Why doesn’t this option show up in the mail app? Only shows up in the browser.

    • Fallsgable

      Its only available in the Browser or web based Gmail…NOT in the Android App…FAIL!
      Printershare (and I am not affiliated with it at all) does it ALL…Gmail, Google docs, print contacts SMS, to any printer as well….I like it better….

    Just tried it out and it works. Sent it to my local printer. Hopefully will be on the Gmail app soon so you don’t have to go to the website.
