Google Cloud Print users, you have a little over one year to complete your printing tasks, then Google is shutting down the service for good.

Cloud Print, Google’s cloud-based printing solution that has been in beta since 2010, will no longer be supported as of December 31, 2020. Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will no longer be able to print using Google Cloud Print. We recommend that over the next year, you identify an alternative solution and execute a migration strategy.

Cloud Print has been with us since 2010, and as far as I can tell, it’s really enjoyed by those who use it. However, Google says its been improving Chrome’s native printing experience, so I suppose the company feels keeping Cloud Print around isn’t necessary.

Farewell, Cloud Print!
