Print from Motorola Xoom/ Android devices for free
Printing directly from the Motorola Xoom adds more potent to an already versitile tablet. Google’s clould print service forms the back bone. To begin, enable the Google Cloud Print in the chrome browser on the computer that is directly connected to the printer. Click on the settings icon in computer chrome browser and select options. In the left pane, click on Under the hood and at the bottom, click on sign into Google Cloud Print. Use your gmail account login details (possibily same as the chrome sync service). It will show the printers installed on the computer. Select your default printer and close the settings tab. Leave the chrome window open.
Now if you just need to print documents from Gmail or Google Docs open in your Xoom browser or any android device, just select print from the fall down menu in the left corner and the google cloud printer will show up. But generally printing is often required to print pdfs, webpages or other files stored on your device. For that, download and install the free app from the android marketplace: Cloud Print BETA. It is not a google app but the implementation is perfect and it works very well. Once you install the app, just sign in with the same login credentials as you used on the desktop chrome browser while enabling the cloud print. This app adds an option in the share/send-to menu of all the apps. If you have to print a webpage from say Motorola Xoom, under the settings in the top right corner select share page. Cloud Print will be one of the options, select it and your page will print on the designated printer. You don’t need to be in the Local Network to use Cloud Print, it will work as long as the chrome window is open on the desktop that is directly connected to the printer and you have signed into the Google Cloud Print service. The service is free (its ads supported and you can donate $$ to remove them) and works on all android devices.
