HP LaserJet Pro - Use an Android mobile device to set up a wireless-capable printer on a wireless network


You can use an Android mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet to set up a wireless-capable printer on a wireless network. Simply install the HP Smart app on the phone or tablet and set up the printer's connection to the wireless network. After that, you can send print jobs from the Android mobile device when it is connected to the same wireless network as the printer.


Before you begin, make sure you have the following requirements:
  • An active Internet connection and a wireless network
  • The wireless network password or key (if required by your network)
  • An HP LaserJet Pro wireless-enabled printer that has been set up and turned on
  • An Android phone or tablet that is connected to the wireless network

Video overview

In addition to the instructions provided in this document, you can view the following video of how to set up the printer on a wireless network using an Android mobile device:

Step one: Restore the printer network settings

Restore the printer network settings back to factory defaults. Follow the steps for your control panel type:
IMPORTANT: If you previously connected a USB cable or Ethernet cable to your printer, disconnect it now.

Step two: Get the HP Smart app

  1. If it is not already connected, connect the Android device to the same network in which you want to connect the printer.
  2. Go to 123.hp.com.
  3. Tap Get the App and then follow the prompts to install HP Smart. There might be a prompt to install the "HP Print Service Plugin" if it is not already installed. Install the HP Print Service Plugin if prompted.

Step three: Set up the printer on the wireless network

  1. Open the HP Smart app, tap the check box to agree to the terms, and then tap Start. If this is the first time the app is opened, a welcome screen appears.
  2. Tap Select a Printer, and then tap Continue. The app searches for and detects printers connected to the wireless network and printers that need to be set up.
  3. If no printer is found or your printer is not in the list of detected printers, tap Set up a New Printer or Add Printer. Otherwise, select your printer model from the list. It will have "Setup" in the name.
  4. If prompted, enter the password or passphrase for your wireless network, and then tap Continue. Wait while the app finds the printer, configures it for a wireless connection, and then connects it to the network.
  5. With the connection complete, tap Continue.
    To print using HP Smart in Android, the HP Print Service Plugin must be installed and enabled. If the message HP Print Service Plugin is missing! appears, follow the prompts to install the plugin, and then return to HP Smart.
  6. With the printer setup complete, try to print from your Android device by tapping Print a Document.
    If you receive any prompts by the plugin or app requesting access to your device or files, always tap Allow.
  7. Follow the instructions, adjust any desired settings, and then tap Print. The document prints over the wireless network on your HP LaserJet Pro printer.
The printer is ready for wireless printing from your Android mobile device.

Optional: Print a network configuration page

If you want to print from additional devices, print a network configuration page from the printer control panel. The page shows the settings for the printer, including the IP address, which can be used to set up your printer on other devices.
Follow the steps for your type of control panel:
