New Canon Print Service for Mobile Printing from Android 4.4 and Select HP Slate Tablets

android plug-inCanon U.S.A. has launched Canon Print Service, a mobile-print app that enables users to print from any Android version 4.4 (KitKat) enabled device, as well as from select Hewlett-Packard Slate tablets to select Canon printers and MFPs. Canon Print Service works on top of Android’s recently announced printing framework, and enables users to print their business documents, personal documents, and photographs to Canon printing systems over a wireless network.

The firm says its Canon Print Service is an ideal solution for existing and new Canon customers, as users who already own compatible Canon systems don’t need to upgrade their printers, nor download new print-driver software. When printing with the new plug-in, users can also select paper size, number of copies, paper orientation, and other printing options.

    Why does this only work in usa and not world wide… cant download because its not available in australia????

    • Canon Print Services does not appear to be geographically restricted. If anything, its biggest restriction at the moment is the Android Kit Kat 4.4 requirement which represents ~25% of the Android market share.
