Easy printing on your HP printers
Today more than ever, companies need to support cloud-based printing services to help workers stay productive wherever they are, protect document confidentiality, and reduce print waste and costs. Users need a more secure, flexible, and easy to set up printing solution.
Introducing the HP Print for Chrome extension.
While basic local printing is supported natively in Chrome OS. The HP Print for Chrome extension is adding the ability for users to easily send print jobs to one of two HP cloud printing destinations: Print Anywhere (a premium solution that allows users to remotely print to their own printer) or HP Roam for Business (a for fee business oriented solution that provide users with the capability to release print jobs at any HP Roam-enabled office printer).
Documents sent to Print Anywhere or HP Roam for Business are securely printed after the user authenticates and chooses to print them from their mobile device.
Using the HP Print for Chrome extension gives administrators a simple tool to manage printing policies for user groups and individual printers. Controlling printer usage can lower costs for ink or toner and paper. When effective printing policies are set, end users are automatically directed to print on the appropriate printer, using the right setting for their usage type. Many frustrating printing mistakes can be avoided, saving time and helping to reduce printing expenses.
Individual home/SMB users can download and install the extension from the Chrome Web store. For users on managed accounts, an IT admin can push the extension to all users in their organization via the force-extension install feature found in the Google admin console.
