Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Still have a question? Find additional answers and help.

Is my printer compatible with Chrome in-OS printing?

HP printers that support IPP Everywhere require no setup – simply print and select your printer, if necessary.

To find out if your printer is compatible, go to IPP Everywhere Printers (in English).

Additionally, thousands of HP printers support in-OS printing through the HP Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) project. These printers must first be added through Chrome’s printer settings. To find out if your printer is supported through HPLIP, go to HP Linux Imaging and Printing (in English).

Can I manage enterprise printing in Chrome?

Yes, you can manage HP printers remotely through the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) and Google admin tools.

For more information, go to Google’s page on Manage local and network printers in Chrome OS (in English).
