How To Print Images And Documents Wirelessly From Your iOS And Android Phone?

With just a few simple steps, you can easily print documents and images on your phone without having to plug in wires or transfer data to a computer.

  1. iOS

This is relatively simple but requires the printer to support the AirPrint feature (if not, you can refer to other solutions below).

First, connect the printer to your home or company Wi-Fi network, making sure both devices are on the same network.

Next, open the document you want to print and click the Share button > Print (print). On the next screen, click Select Printer and select the printer to use. Then, set up a few parameters such as the number of prints, page range, single-sided/double-sided, black and white or color printing. Finally, click the Print button in the upper right corner.

How to print documents, photos from iPhone and iPad without AirPrint?

For example, if you are using an HP printer, you can download its own application to perform wireless printing. This process may not be 100% identical to all printers; however, it is relatively easy.

First, download and install the printer application to your device via the App Store or the manufacturer’s website. When finished, users just need to open the application and find the document to print.

Before printing, you should reset some parameters such as a number of prints, quality, color/black and white printing via the Settings icon (settings) in the upper right corner, then press Done > Print to begin.

If you want more control, you can use third-party software like HandyPrint, Printopia and Printer Pro.

  1. Android

For Android devices, you can take advantage of Google Cloud Print to perform wireless printing. Note, not all printers are compatible with Google Cloud Print, so users should check the list of supported devices before starting the setup at iPad Printer Settings..

In this way, users can perform printing anywhere as long as the device is connected to the Internet. First, open the Chrome browser on your computer and log in with your corresponding Google account. Then, type in the command line address chrome://settings, scroll down below and select Advanced (advanced)> Printing (printing)> Google Cloud Print > Manage Cloud Print devices (manage device Cloud Print) > Add printers (more printers).

At this point, Chrome will display the entire list of installed printers on the computer, what you need to do is select the printer you want to register with Google Cloud Print and then click Add printers.

When you’re done, install the Google Cloud Print app for your phone via Google Play (if the phone supports it, there’s no need to install it). Note make sure the Google account you use on your phone is the same as the one used on the browser.

Now, to print images on your phone, you need to open the Google Photos app, then find the photo to print, click the three dots icon in the upper right corner and select Print. After that, users only need to select the corresponding printer, set the parameters of print, paper size, color, direction, single face/double face.

Similarly, for documents (word, excel, pdf), please open the corresponding file reader application such as Microsoft Word, WPS Office, then click on the three dots icon in the upper right corner and select Print. Same as above, here users also need to reset the parameters, select the corresponding printer and then click Print.

Hopefully, with the tips that has just introduced above, readers will save more time in printing, no need to transfer data to a computer or establish complicated connections.
