Epson has today announced support for Android printing, the printing platform introduced by Android KitKat (version 4.4), showing it’s committed to driving wireless printing.
With Android Printing, mobile users can effortlessly print documents, photos, web pages and emails – without the need for a dedicated printing app. Over 100 new and legacy Epson-Connect enabled printers and all-in-ones now offer built-in printing support for the latest Android smartphones and tablets.
“Epson is proud to support the new built-in Android Printing feature introduced in KitKat,” said Kevin Toes, Epson Europe. “It’s a major leap forward for Android users and developers alike. Now, KitKat devices will be able to easily print to new and legacy Epson printers from both pre-installed Google apps as well as new apps currently under development. This means a new generation of Android users will realize the benefit of mobile printing with just a few taps.”
Users can discover available printers, change paper sizes, choose specific pages to print, and print almost any kind of document, image or file. Following a download of the free Epson Print Enabler, users can easily print to any compatible Epson printer model, as well as access and support a current range of print-enabled Google Play apps.
In addition, Epson is a member of the Mopria Alliance, further underscoring its ongoing dedication to advancing mobile printing standards that allow users to easily and conveniently print regardless of brand, device or operating system.
