Google Cloud Print now expanded to even more places, making it easier to print when and where you need it the most. Starting today, you can print to any FedEx Office location in the US through Google Cloud Print.
“Simply choose “Print to FedEx Office” in the Cloud Print dialog, and you’ll receive a retrieval code that you can use at any FedEx Office Print & Go self-service device at more than 1,800 FedEx Office stores across the nation,” explains Paolo Ferraris, Software Engineer and Printer Extraordinaire on Google Chrome blog.
So if you’re on a business trip to California, you can submit a report for your colleague in New York to print out at the neighborhood FedEx Office.
Also, Google has added Canon to the list of companies offering printers that are Google Cloud Print Ready. Now you can choose from a variety of printers from Canon, Epson, Kodak and HP that make it easy to print from anywhere.
Finally, Google also made it possible to send documents to your phone or tablet running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich through Google Cloud Print.
“Once you install Chrome for Android Beta and sign in, your Android device will appear as a destination in the Cloud Print dialog.”
“After choosing your Android device, a PDF copy of your document will open in Chrome for Android Beta. Next time you need to print something to take on the go, save some paper and “print” it to your Android device instead!,” Ferraris adds.
