Where one software story ends, another continues

MyQ has 4 different solutions for clients using Chrome OS after the end of Google Cloud Print, which are — just as the terminated service — completely free of charge.

What was Google Cloud Print, exactly?

Google Cloud Print was originally introduced as a solution for Chromebooks running Chrome OS and Android devices to give them a tool for accessing printers. Yet a few years ago, both systems got their own native solution for printing, which was one of Google’s main argument for shutting its printing service down.

Printing for Chrome Users Today

How to… with MyQ X

  • IPPS Protocol — For customers using Chrome OS in enterprise environments, IT administrators can perform a quick configuration in the Google Admin console and set up print via a safe IPPS protocol, which enables users to print natively from Chromebooks.
  • Web upload — By entering MyQ’s WEB UI, any MyQ customer can benefit from “Web upload” print, by simply uploading the to-be-printed file into the web browser, from where it is then processed. Minimal setup for anybody.
  • E-mail print — Allows users to send files to the printing device via a predefined email address and release them by entering a PIN code sent by the MyQ X system. This is an entirely out-of-the-network printing options.
  • MyQ Mobile Printing — App All MyQ customers can also download the MyQ Mobile Printing app to their Chromebooks from Google Play and use it to upload, manage and release their jobs directly.

Print freely, for free

To sum up, with Google Cloud Print gone, all MyQ Chrome OS users can get their document printing under control with Web upload, E-mail print, or by using the MyQ Mobile Printing app. Moreover, users in the managed Google accounts environments can use the IPPS protocol as well. Now it’s time to open your Chromebook, pick one, and print without limits!
