Google has announced that Cloud Print, which is an easy way for you to easily print things from the web using Google Chrome (even on printers that lack an internet connection), will print its final pages on December 31st, 2020. 9to5Googlereported on the news. Cloud Print has been a handy service, as it works both on desktop and mobile and gives extended utility to older printers. Cloud print was introduced back in 2010, many still believe that Google Cloud Print still has a beta tag.
In a support document, Google recommends using the printing experience that’s embedded into Chrome OS or, if you’re on a different OS, using “the respective platform’s native printing infrastructure.”
Most users are very uncomfortable with the death of Cloud Print, which is probably part of the reason why Google has provided more than a year’s notice before it shuts off the service for good.
The company hasn’t given a reason why it’s sending Cloud Print to the Google graveyard, hopefully Google will comment on this soonest.
