    I can print from email, but not Google Docs as advertised.

    Anyone able to do this?

    Thanks.

    I still do not know what benefits Google brings to printing.

    You kids, you make it all so complicated. I remember when you simply connected your printer to your computer, installed a driver, and printed. WiFi came along and not I can put my printer in the closet and WiFi is my cable in this case.

    As for Cloud Printing, apparently you need a "Cloud Aware Printer." I bought a WiFi enabled printer because I thought the iPad would print to my brand new WiFi printer. Later learned that it does, just as long as you have one of a handful of printers. My printer was not on the list.

    Not sure I approve of Google Cloud Printing or not. It seems to add more crap to a basic worlkflow that is simple enough as it is.

    I enabled Cloud in Chrome and the print option appears in my IPad email However when I try to use it, it says no printer found
    My printer is online and I'm logged into Google so not sur what problem is. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Google Cloud Printing only shows up when you are on Google's website. It prints throught HTML 5 AND needs to have a Cloud printer attached to your PC with the latest version of Chrome...

    I have no idea why they ever decided to do this. It's a horrible printing solution in my opinion.

    Still Windows only I believe as well.
