Google adds remote printing to cloud computing features
People using Google Chrome will soon be able to use any printer whether or not the computer has the software installed on it. The information is transmitted through the cloud and Google’s new application Print Cloud.
The company announced the development of the application in April. Although no timetable for its release has been set, the company did release its open source code when it made the announcement. The company cites the lagging wireless printing technology and its overall desire to make life in the cloud easier as the reason for the application’s development.
“Using the one component all major devices and operating systems have in common – access to the cloud – today we’re introducing some preliminary designs for a project called Google Cloud Print, a service that enables any application [web, desktop or mobile] on any device to print to any printer,” Google product manager Mike Jazayeri wrote on a company blog.
Following the hacking attack that the company traced to a pair of Chinese schools in January, it has focused tirelessly on improving customer services and security. An email glitch that affected messages sent from Gmail to Microsoft Outlook was addressed after several customer complaints in late March.
