How to Print:

Print From Your Mobile Device Quickly and Easily
See how simple printing can be from a mobile device with the Mopria Print Service:
Using Mopria

A smartphone or tablet with the Android Operating System, version 4.4 or later.

Your Android smartphone or tablet may be able to be upgraded to Android 4.4 (KitKat) or later. Check your phone settings to update your device.
Using Mopria

A wireless network.

The mobile device and printer must be connected to the same network. Mopria Print Service uses mDNS to automatically discover your printer through the local 802.11 wireless network. The printer must be either wirelessly connected to the network router or with an Ethernet cable.
Using Mopria

A printer, MFP or print accessory that is Mopria-certified.

The list of printers is growing every week; go to supported products to see the latest. Your printer at home or at work may be included as manufacturers are certifying older printer models. Plus a printer accessory may be able to add the mobile print capability to your existing printer.
Using Mopria

Apps that support Android 4.4 (KitKat) printing.

Many native Android apps support printing, including Gallery, Chrome, Gmail, Photos, Drive, Docs, Sheets and Slides, plus 3rd party apps such as Adobe Reader and Kingsoft Office. Additionally, other popular apps available in the Google Play Store include the print feature. If the Print button does not display in an app, the app does not support Android printing or the Mopria Print Service at this time.

Note: Mopria Print Service is not supported through Bluetooth connections or on cellular 3G or 4G data connections.
