Google Cloud Print To Shut Down By End Of 2020

Google Cloud Print To Shut Down By End Of 2020”

As of December 21, 2020, Google will be sunsetting the Cloud Print platform when it will be shuffled off to the ever-expanding graveyard of products that once were. Now with Google bringing native printing to Chrome, it seems Google wants to expose more of the world to the pain of suffering of installing and maintaining print drivers. The users are hereby requested to either switch to the native printing or other alternative solutions. If this year we saw how your social network Google+ was closing this year, next year it will Cloud print. It's an early heads up, yes, but it's a necessary one - Cloud Print is pretty widely used. Android also no longer requires Cloud Print, as a native printing service was added in Oreo, and most printer manufacturers have their own apps and print functions.

Introduced in 2010, Cloud Print lets users print things from Google Chrome on desktop or mobile even if the printer doesn't have an internet connection. The good news is that you've got a little over a year to find an alternate solution as Cloud Print will remain functional until January 1, 2021. In case you've just arrived on the planet Earth, there's something you should know: printers are still some of the buggiest and hardest devices to use.

The following native print management features are now or will be supported by Chrome OS by the end of 2019.

Regardless, Google is getting savaged by bloggers for killing yet another service, one that majority never even tried, let alone used regularly.
