HP, Google Join Together On ePrinting


Palo Alto, Calif. - Hewlett-Packard said its ePrint-capable printers will now support Google's Cloud Printing project.

HP originally announced its online ePrintCenter in June 2010 and added the ePrint capability to all but its entry-level printers. At the time, Google said its Cloud Printing project would support HP efforts.

HP's ePrintCenter works by assigning each printer an email address so the user can email a photo or document to the printer from a computer or mobile device. Adding Google to the mix requires placing the HP device's email into the users Google account and allows printing from Gmail for Mobile, Google Docs for Mobile and Chrome OS. Google said additional third-party apps will be added in the future that will work directly with the HP printers.

Google's Cloud Printing will work with other vendors' printers.
