If a person wants to access his home or business printer from anywhere in the world while carrying any smart device, or if a person wants to use his friend’s printer to send him some critical prints in hardcopy without delivering the softcopy of the document, cloud printing can be a solution.

What is cloud printing?

A printer that is connected to the internet is known as a cloud printer. Cloud printers can be accessed from any location, from any number of devices, and by any number of people at once. 

These printers are available over the cloud; no software installation or driver upgrades are required, allowing users to complete their tasks without investing time in cable connections or other installations.

Advantages of cloud printers

You can send print commands from anywhere. You don’t have to be close to the printer in terms of location.

Send a print command from any device, such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

Any application, even your own custom ones, can send print commands.

What do you need to get started?

1. You need to subscribe to a cloud printing service.
