Troubleshooting

Q. (PC, Linux, or Mac) I have a Office or other document that I need to print.

A. There are two options to solve this.

     First, option would be to upload the document to Google drive and using the Chrome browser print from there.

     Second you could print the document off as a pdf and then open the pdf document with the Chrome browser.

Q. (Android) I can't figure out how to enable Cloud Print on my Android device.

A. Some devices are made differently and have different options. For example Nexus devices will have the enable Cloud Print option under Settings and Printing. LG devices most likely auto-enable Cloud Print upon installation of the app, but Cloud Print options are in Settings and Publish and Share.

Q. (IOS) Do I have to purchase an app to use Google Cloud Print?

A. No you do not have to purchase an app. Unfortunately you will only be able to use Cloud Print from Google apps.
