Where did you see that? I find it hard to believe as it would really pull the (print) rug out from under the Chromebooks as they have no other way to print.I just read that Google Cloud Print was being removed. If I understand it correctly if they remove that then there will be no way to print from the Chromebook anymore. Is that true, or was this articles author just over reacting?
Sure, you can use cloud aware printers, that can connect to CloudPrint directly, currently any HP ePrint printer can do that (ePrint and Print App supported printers - HP Support Forum). And we are looking forward to see more printers from other manufacturers.Is there something in the works to fix this issue. You should be able to print directly to a printer from USB or Lan. I thought the whole reason was to detach ourselves from PC's.
I had not thought this in-depth about it. It does make sense that the proxy would have been removed. Was this ever a part of the Chrome OS and removed? Or was it never there in the first place?Hey guys,
no worries, CloudPrint is not removed from Chrome OS.
The confusion here is because CloudPrint contains of 2 parts: proxy and client.
Proxy is used to connect you locally installed printers to CloudPrint, and that part is indeed removed form Chrome OS build because there is no way to connect local printer to Chrome OS now.
But client part of CloudPrint (one which is used to submit print jobs) is still part of Chrome OS and is not going to be removed.
