Samsung Laser Printers - How to Setup a Samsung Google Cloud Printer

Google Cloud-Ready printers make wireless printing from your PC, Mac or Chromebook, fast and convenient. By connecting your computer and printer to the same Wi-Fi network, you can print from anywhere in your home or business.
Before starting the setup, make sure you have completed the following:
  • The printer must be Google Cloud compatible. To see if your printer is Google Cloud compatible, go to, type in your printer model, and then go to the printer model's specification document.
  • Chrome browser must be installed, since Google Cloud Print works through Chrome browser. If you are using a PC or Mac and have never installed Chrome browser, go to Google Chrome Download Website to download and install.
  • The printer and the computer must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If the printer is not already connected to the network and you have a traditional PC available, go to Software and Driver Downloads and enter your model printer into the search text box to download the latest driver, and then follow the prompts to connect the printer to the Wi-Fi network. If you are using a Chromebook, check the owner's manual for instructions on Wi-Fi connection for the specific printer model.
