Cloud Print has been round since 2010, however regardless of a flowery web site and deep Android and Chrome OS integration, it by no means truly made it out of beta. And now it by no means will. Google has quietly introduced that customers have till December 31, 2020, to take pleasure in Cloud Print. When the calendar modifications to 2021, “units throughout all working methods will now not have the ability to print utilizing Google Cloud Print.”

That’s 12 months away, so it’s giving customers plenty of time to seek out one thing new, but it surely’s unlikely that they’ll discover something as simple and easy as Cloud Print. Once you related a Wi-Fi printer to your Google Account, you’re in a position to print from wherever no matter your location. It was particularly helpful within the early days of Chrome OS, when it was almost inconceivable to attach a printer every other approach.

Nonetheless, with native print administration on Chromebooks, Google feels prefer it’s time to place Cloud Print out to pasture. In a help doc, it outlines a number of options which might be (or will probably be) out there in Chrome OS, together with just a few which might be nonetheless in improvement:

  • Assist for exterior CUPS print servers, together with authentication
  • Coverage to configure connections to exterior CUPS print servers 
  • APIs for third-parties to entry print job metadata, submit print jobs and printer administration capabilities

It’s unclear if Google plans on constructing any of those options into Android 11. So take this as your warning to discover a totally different workflow on your Wi-Fi printing wants in addition to one other causes to not rely on Google providers.
