Google Killing Cloud Print In 2020

Recommended Posts

I love how the article says users will have to find an alternative.  Not too many of those if all you have is a Chromebook.

Depending upon the Chromebook some can run Linux apps nowadays according to some YouTube reviews I've seen this year. Now if there's an alternative or not I wouldn't know.

The apps are kind of iffy.  Some people have good luck with them -- others can't get them to work -- even if they're using one of the newer Chromebooks.  And, I believe, there are some very new CBs that will work directly with a wireless printer if connected to the same network.  My main computer is Windows but I do have a CB for quick access if away and I don't bother with printing anything from that unit.  CBs are limiting but if it's all you need, they suffice.

I saw a YouTube tech news video the other day that very briefly mentioned modern ChromeBooks have better printer support being a contributing reason for Google ending Cloud Print.

Good point.  Regardless of Google's decision, I know a lot of people who are not happy about Cloud Print's pending demise.
