Chrome Now Lets You Print Any Page with Cloud Print

Announced in April 2010 and launched in January this year, Google Cloud Print (GCP) is said to be gathering serious steam, with 6 million printers already connected to it as per Google. Now even more people are likely to jump onto the GCP bandwagon as the latest version of Google’s Chrome browser features tighter integration with the cloud printing service.

Beginning with Chrome 16, which was released on Tuesday, anyone with the browser on Windows, Mac, and Linux will be able to leverage Google Cloud Print to print any webpage using the familiar Ctrl+P command (use Ctrl+Shift+P to print using system dialogue), the company announced earlier this week. Further, Google has added the print preview feature to Google Chromebooks.

“Since launching earlier this year, we’ve seen a surge of enthusiasm from users and developers. More than 6 million printers have already been connected to GCP using Google Chrome; dozens of cloud-ready printers have been released or announced by manufacturers like Epson, HP and Kodak; and the developer community has released a flurry of apps and extensions to enable cloud printing from both Android and iOS,” wrote Akshay Kannan, product manager at Google, in a blog post Wedenesday.
