As people become increasingly reliant upon their phones, it’s no wonder that demand for wireless mobile printing just keeps growing.
If you’ve ever found it cumbersome to have to open your computer any time you want to print something, you’re not alone—that’s why you can now print directly from your smartphone.
A Whole New World
Just 5 years ago, wanting to print a photo or any other file or page directly from your phone would have required a fair amount of technical input, but that’s no longer the case. As long as you have a working knowledge of both your smartphone and your printer, getting them to integrate is a breeze.
If you’re strapped for time and just need to print something quickly, skip the process of booting up your computer and use the device that you’ve always got on hand instead: your phone.
Simple as Can Be
Given the high functionality of smart devices, and the fact that they’re all increasingly integrated, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that both Apple and Android devices now come equipped with mobile printing capabilities designed to work with virtually any printer.
Things may get a little tricky depending on your printer, but most new printers will also come integrated with these functions. To print from an Android phone, navigate to your Cloud Print app and add your printer. To print from an iPhone, you can simply select “print” from the share settings of any document and AirPrint will automatically find printers on the same network.
It’s hard to believe that technology has advanced to this point so rapidly, but knowing how to print directly from your smartphone is bound to make your daily life simpler.
