Since Google announced the soon to be released Android 8.0 Oreo operating system (OS), its declared features have been improving with each new announcement. One of the hottest features so far is solving a big headache for Android users.
No more printer plugins
Sometimes we are in a hurry to print something fast and the inconvenience of downloading the printer plugin from Google Play Store, then installing it and getting it set up was such a drag. Now we can forget all about third party puglins thanks to the new feature in Android 8.0 Oreo.
To achieve this performance, Google has started a partnership with Mopria and will introduce a default print service to Android 8.0 for the very first time.
Mopria certified printers
The default printer service created by Mopria will work with any printer certified by the company, which is about 97% of currently available printers on the market. Regardless, those who want to make sure their printer is Mopria certified should ask the retailer or look online.
Greg Kuziej, Mopria’s Chairman of the Board, declared that thanks to the technology offered by their company, Google and the Android Open Source Project will offer Android users the possibility of using a printer from their smartphone, without having to waste time on downloading other programs.
This news is very well received by Android fans, since the OS has been lacking a cohesive way for printing documents ever since its creation.
How to use the Default Print Service on Android 8.0 Oreo
To enjoy the benefits of the default Print service, simply go to Settings, look for the Connected devices option, click on it and then chose Printing, and then click on Default Print Service. Once opened the Default Print service you will be able to print via Wi-Fi or manually.
