Google Cloud Print™ Web Printing Service Support on Select Sharp MFP Models
Print anything from anywhere on your Google Chrome™ browser-enabled devices
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America is pleased to announce the scheduled release of special firmware support for Google Cloud Print Web Printing Service for select Sharp MFP models. Google Cloud Print Web Printing Service connects your printers to Google Cloud and makes the printers available to you to print from your phone, tablet, Chromebook™ notebook computer and PCs.
According to industry analyst IDC, Google Chrome browser adoption rates are trending up in the education space as more than a million Chromebook devices were sold into schools during the second quarter of 2014. In addition, there are more than five million businesses across all industries that use Google™ for work.
The special firmware will allow you to register your Sharp MFP to Google Cloud Print.

1 thought on “Sharp Copier Google Cloud Print”
Thanks ever so much for the information.
I have an MX-2640 and a Chrome Book. The Google Cloud Print option is in applications on the machine’s webpage and when I hit the ‘register’ button I just get an error message (processing failed 69BEF0DB:877:-1)
The machine was setup ‘wired only’ as I thought the Google Cloud Print ran through my wireless router to the networked printer. I have since enabled wired + wireless and entered my router details; tried again to register, but get the same error message. I would be grateful if you could give me a clue as to why the Sharp MFP won’t setup. Thanks lots.
