Google Offers Windows Support For The Cloud Print Service

Microsoft and Google are the biggest giants in the tech world. Apparently, there is a healthy rivalry between both of them. Google’s venture into the genre of operating systems with Android was an unexpected shock for Microsoft. But, both giants have come to terms recently to improve the features of Cloud Print service, a modern technology developed by Google to establish connection between Web and printers.

The scope of cloud print 

Experts were looking forward to seeing Cloud print service released with the Windows support. As the service is greatly beneficial to the Windows computers, Microsoft support would be an added benefit to the service. Through the Cloud print service, users can connect their printing devices to the web and print their files from anywhere in the world. All they need to have is a computing device with internet support. Google stated that the service is available on all types of computing devices such as desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Google’s decision to provide support for Cloud Print service for Windows will be beneficial to Google as it facilitates the functionality of the app across Windows operating systems.

Update to Cloud Print service

Microsoft support for the Cloud Print service facilitates the addition of a couple of tools that would improve its usability. While one of the tools (Google Cloud Printer for Windows) is a printer driver, the other facilitates the network access to the service on Windows operating systems.
Using the Google Cloud Printer tool, users are able to access the connected printers from applications running on the Windows platform. The version of Cloud Print service with added features is said to be providing users with wider access to network services than before.

Runs in the background

One of the most appreciated advantage of the Cloud Print service on Windows operating system is that it runs in the background. The users can use this application in the same manner as they would use a native Windows service. In fact, the application simplifies the steps involved in connecting the new printers or maintaining them.
Cloud Print Service App for Windows Operating Systems 

Google has officially released the beta version of its Cloud Print service for Windows operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. Though the app is featured with Windows support, the users need to download and install Google Chrome as their default web browser to use this service. Along with the Windows version of Cloud Print app, Google has also released the Android version.
