HP Enterprise, HP LaserJet Pro - Use HP's Built-in Print Solution for Android and Fire

Introduction

HP's built-in print solution can be used to automatically find and print from an Android or Kindle device to select HP printers using a W-Fi or Wireless Direct connection. Because the print solution is built into the Android operating system, you do not need to install drivers or download software to use it. Kindle devices require a one-time download to install the HP Print Plug-In the first time that the print solution is used.

Use HP's built-in print solution

  1. From a supported app, open the app's menu, and then tap Print.
  2. For Kindle users, download and install the HP Print Plug-in when prompted.
  3. Find the option to select your printer to view a list of available printers.
  4. Find the printer on the Wi-Fi or Wireless Direct list, and then tap to select it.
    note:
    To use Wireless Direct printing, the Android or Kindle device must be within wireless range of the printer.
  5. If prompted, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the connection.
    note:
    After you select the printer, your device will remember the selection for future use.
  6. Make any changes to the available print options.
  7. Tap Print.

Check compatibility

HP's built-in print solution for Android is compatible only with select HP printers and only works with certain Android and Fire operating system versions. Additionally, HP's built-in print solution must use a supported connection type, and print supported file types from compatible applications. If you are not sure, use the following information to check compatibility.

HP's built-in print solution is available on mobile devices running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and later, or Kindle's Fire OS 3.0 (Mojito) and later.

Supported printers

The HP built-in print solution supports many HP printers. To view a list of printers that can print using the built-in print solution, go to HP Printers - Printers that can use mobile printing solutions (c03839843) (in English).

Supported connection types

HP's built-in print solution can be used with a wireless network (Wi-Fi) connection via the mobile device or with a Wireless Direct connection via the printer.
note:
When the Android device connects to a Wi-Fi network, the device automatically finds and displays the available printers. When the device is not connected to a Wi-Fi network, the device automatically finds and displays Wireless Direct-capable printers nearby.
  • Wi-Fi connection: When the device and the printer are connected to the same local wireless or Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) network (or subnet) through an access point at any location.
  • Wireless Direct: When the device is connected directly to a nearby HP Wireless Direct-capable printer. Wireless Direct is a feature on select HP printers that enables wireless printing without a accessing the company network.
