Are you looking for way to use or share same WiFi printer with many pc or android device? Let’s see how to do it using Google Cloud Print in simple steps.
What is Google Cloud Print? Cloud Print is a free service from Google that connects all the devices on the network (tablet, PC, smartphone) to the same printer via wireless as long as they use the same Google account. However, you can also use the printer for those who use a different account if you authorize it.
Before you continue reading this guide, you must already have a Google account and have Google Cloud Print configured on your account.
Share the printer with another specific user
Open Google Chrome and enter your Google account.
Go to the Cloud Print section ( click here ).
Then click on the Printers item on the left side menu.
Now select the printer on the network you want to share with another user.
Then click on the Share button at the top.
Enter the email address of the person to be authorized to use the printer.
It must be the email address associated with your Google account.
Does your friend have a Google account? To share the same printer on Cloud Print the other person must use a personal Google account (eg Gmail). If you don’t have one, you can register it for free on Google.
Then click on Share below.

Can I authorize everyone? Yes, you can also authorize all users to use the printer, without having to indicate specific individual users. In this case, select the printer then click on Edit and choose the option All users who received the link can access the printer and click on the Save button.
