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