Google Enables Wireless Printing from Smartphones

Google has finally rolled out wireless printing from smartphones for Docs and emails via an application called Cloud Print. Google says the ability will be available soon in a beta version for HTML5 versions of Google Docs and Gmail. The feature, which was originally developed for Chrome OS will now be available on any phone that supports HTML5.

The Cloud Print setup

Sounds like something you want to get hooked up with? Google's also released an FAQ which explains the wireless printing set up. They say that right now, printers can only be set up from a Windows based PC but Mac and Linux support is in the works. To print wirelessly, you have to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. To do that, you have to install the latest beta version of Google Chrome on a Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 computer that's connected to your printer. Once installed, enable the Google Cloud Print connector in Google Chrome.
