Google Chrome: printing in the cloud

Making a light OS where everything takes place in the cloud sounds fine and dandy, but Google had to come up with a simple way to allow users to print documents. Not n easy task with so many different printers out there but Google says they’ve cracked it!


The solution sounds kinda brilliant because of its simplicity: printing in the cloud with Google Print Cloud.
This is how Google explains it:
“Rather than rely on the local operating system (or drivers) to print, apps can use Google Cloud Print to submit and manage print jobs. Google Cloud Print will then be responsible for sending the print job to the appropriate printer with the particular options the user selected, and returning the job status to the app.”
