Smoke and mirrors This is great! After considering buying a print server, and trying to get my Spark Huawei hg630b wireless modem to do the job as it's supposed to, I discovered this little magic wand from Google. Printing from an Android tablet to a Win10 laptop's USB printer (logged in with someone else's account) - no problem. Sweet.
Don't BUY Google or anything with that name Junk, plain junk. Bought a Google Cloud Printer as it sounded so simple and convenient. Well, far from it. Bill Gates, when you left the barn door open all the good horses went with it. Stay away from Google software or anything with the name and your life will be much more simpler.
Can't use direct from app or email, I suspect it's thanks to broken Samsung print plugin Fellow Samsung users, I believe I isolated the issue to the Samsung Print Plugin that we can't remove & can't use other print plugins without it. I use Brother plugin for print & Google Cloud Plugin for PDF saving. I first uninstalled the Brother plugin. Still got the "Failed to change settings" error when printing email. Then uninstalled Google plugin, same. Disabled Samsung plugin. Reinstalled Brother. Phone couldn't find printer. Enabled Samsung plugin. Found printer, got same error. Thanks, Samsung!
Cloud printing is impossible I bought an expensive Cloud Printer just because it was a Google Cloud Printer and it never worked from my Chromebox or Nexus phone. My workaround was to go to my Samsung phone and print to a Samsung printer using their app. It's preposterous that it's so difficult to make these things easy. Don't buy anything that has "Cloud printing". You will waste your time, money and end up in an asylum. Did I mention I hate it? Most Google products/features are good. This is not one of them. G should be ashamed.
This is the most complicated Crap that I'e ever come across to download/install/print..................WHATEVER! This app was developed specifically for Bill Gates! I would not recommend this app unless you are real computer savvy. This was one helck of a disappointment! It's hard for me to click on the 1 star when I don't feel it deserves it.
I use this for making PDFs only... when it works. Since an update for "stability and bug fixes" it crashes constantly. I used to be able to close Chrome and it would re-set. Now I have to uninstall/re-install just to get it working again. Google and Android have pitiful developers! They make bare minimally functional apps that have bugs and crash, but people depend on them, because Google makes it impossible for other devs to make apps with these needed functions. So I use Google Print for making PDFs only, it doesn't work with actual printers! LOL
