    Cloud Print solutions for an ever-evolving environment

    When Google announced in January this year that it was discontinuing Cloud Print and would no longer be supporting the service, it came as a surprise to many. This particularly at a time of increased remote work and a rise in companies looking for tools to help their employees remain productive and print securely over WiFi and from Android devices. 

    Instead, the search engine giant suggested that users switch to Chrome or find an alternative print solution, leading to a rise of complaints and confusion in the market around how Cloud Print could be enabled and which printers were compatible with Chromebooks and other print solutions. 

    As a company, Google’s decision is interesting, especially when we’ve noticed a distinct increase in the demand for A4 printers and Cloud Printing. However, as Óscar Sánchez, President & CEO of KYOCERA Document Solutions America points out in this article:  

    “Our business is evolving rapidly, and it is only by understanding the environment around us that it will be possible to make the best strategic decisions. Our customers will demand us to deliver the technology that meets their changing needs. They require solutions that support and strengthen remote working environments, while safeguarding their data against new security threats as they transition to cloud-based services.”

    To this end, the remedy to Google’s decision was an easy one for Kyocera clients – simply download the Kyocera Mobile Print app or Mobility Print from  Papercut and follow their prompts to print over WiFi without having to manually add printers through Chrome. In addition, Kyocera offers a wide range of MFPs and printers that are compatible with Chrome.

    As always, we adapt as the environment demands and will continue to strive to provide seamless solutions to ensure security and convenience, no matter where our clients are based.
