Google Cloud Print updated with 'printing' to Chrome for Android and local FedEx offices

New, 11 comments

Google's cloud printing service just got an update that lets users virtually "print" a document to their Android device running the Chrome beta on Ice Cream Sandwich. There's also a new feature that supports printing documents to a local FedEx office via a retrieval code that can be used at over 1,800 stores in the US, and select Canon printers have been added to the list of supported models.

Google's cloud printing service just got an update with quite a few new features. First up is the ability to virtually "print" a document to your Android device's screen — if you're running the Chrome beta on Ice Cream Sandwich, your phone or tablet will show up in the list of printers as seen above, and you can open any document as a PDF from within the browser. Granted, it's probably just as easy to use something like Dropbox, but it's another cool feature for the Chrome browser that isn't helping the torturous wait for Android 4.0 upgrades across the board. Elsewhere, there's a new feature that lets you print off documents to a local FedEx office via a retrieval code that can be used at over 1,800 locations in the US, and select Canon printers have been added to the list of supported models.
