Google Cloud Print brings printing on the go to most Android phones

Today Google started rolling out their Cloud Print feature to most phones that support HTML5 (Android 2.1+). The feature has been in beta testing since last year and allows printing from mobile documents and Gmail without the need to install any software.

To get started you will need to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. It only works on a Windows PC right now, but Mac and Linux support are coming soon. Once setup just navigate to your mobile browser and choose “Print” from the dropdown box in the top right corner. Mobile Gmail users can also print email attachments (such as .pdf or .doc) by clicking the “Print” link that appears next to them.

I tested the Google Cloud Print feature on my Nexus S and the setup was fairly straight forward. It only takes a minute to sign in and select your printer and then printing emails really was as simple as a single click. Let us know if you check it out and tell us what features you would like to see Google add next.
