I have a black and white printer in my office, but it is not on the network, so usually when I print from the standing desk, I will print to the mailroom, or switch to my laptop and print from there.
Google Cloud Print connects your printers (home or work) to the web. Because your printer is connected to the web, you can print to it from anywhere, using any Internet-connected device- your PC, Mac, Chromebook, phone, or tablet. #YES
Here's how you set it up:
Open a browser window and go to chrome://devices
Under Classic Printers, Click Add printers
Choose which printers to add
Click Add Printers
Google will say, "Thanks, you're ready to go!"
Open chrome://devices again
Share your printer(s)
Under My Devices, click the Manage button next to the printer you'd like to share
Choose the printer and click the green Share button at the top center of the page
You can allow anyone to print, or invite selected users by entering their email addresses
Click the Add button when done
Printer users will be listed like users that share a Google Doc
Invited user(s) will receive an email from Google Cloud Print Notifications that you shared the printer
Accept the invitation
Printer will be added to your list of Cloud Print Printers
Of course, I had to test it from my phone too :) I tried with a single page Google Slide.
With the slide desk open, press the three dots at the top right (traffic light?)
Select Share & Export
Google Cloud Print
There's your printer!
Choose your print settings and tap Print
You will see a message in the top left that says Print Job Added
