Most times we have a document we have to print in our phone but get stock because we don't know how to print directly from our phone, so we stress our self by copying the file from phone to PC, Its true that printing hard copies document is one of the task we use our computers to do, but have ever taught of doing the same with your phone. Today am doing to show you ways of doing it with  your Andriod smart Phone or tablet.
It may be hidden away, but it’s possible on any device and doesn’t require any special hardware either. Whether you’re using a manufacturer-specific app or theGoogle Cloud Print service, you can print your documents or favorite photos to almost any printer. Here’s how to get started.

Printing Directly to Your Printer

When you want to print from your Android phone or tablet, the first place to start is the Play Store. Most major brands have their own dedicated apps that will install the necessary drivers to enable you to print directly to their wireless printers.
print services
To find the apps either search in the store, or head to Settings > Printing on your phone and tap Add service. The resulting screen will show all available printing apps, and you can choose the one that corresponds to your printer make.

Each app works in a different way, so follow any on screen instructions for your chosen app and printer. In general terms, you will need to ensure that your printer is connected to the same wireless network as your phone, and it should be automatically detected by the app. You can then select the printer and be ready to go.

Printing with Google Cloud Print

Google Cloud Print offers a way of printing from any computer or mobile device to almost any printer — wireless or not — from anywhere.
There is a growing range of Cloud Ready printers that are fully set up to work with the service, but if you have an older or non-compatible printer you can still use it. Cloud Print works by connecting a printer to your Google account.

Register Your Cloud Ready Printer

Google maintains a full list of Cloud Ready printers. These printers connect directly to the web, and can function without a PC.

Again, the instructions will vary for each printer model. You can find them for each manufacturer on Google’s Cloud Print page. The process requires you to register your printer with your Google account, so that you can access it remotely. this video will you an example of what you need to do with Canon Cloud Ready printer:

Register Your Classic Printer

Obviously, having a Cloud Ready printer is the easiest way to print from Android. But if your printer is older — which Google calls a “Classic” printer — you can still use it. To do this you will need a desktop computer or laptop running Google Chrome (or Chrome OS), and your computer will need to be turned on whenever you want to print to it.
Because Cloud Print connects via your Google account, you will also need to make sure you’re logged in to your account in Chrome, which acts as the print server.
add printer
To begin, open Chrome on your desktop and make sure you’re signed in to your Google account. Next, go to Preferences. In Settings scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Show advanced settings.
register printer
Scroll down further to the section labelled Google Cloud Print, and click Manage. Under Classic Printers click Add printers. You should now see a list of the printers connected to your computer. They should be automatically selected, along with theAutomatically register new printers option. If not, tick them and hit the blueAdd printer(s) button.

And that’s it. Your printer is now registered with your Google account and will be accessible on your Android device so long as you’re logged in to the same account.
manage printers
To manage your printers, your print jobs, or to register new devices, go to theGoogle Cloud Print website.

Set up Cloud Print on Your Phone

Most modern Android devices will not need any additional setup to work with Google Cloud Print. There is a Cloud Print app, but it is preinstalled on devicesrunning Android 4.4 and later. If yours doesn’t have it, you can download it for free from the Play Store.

How to Print Documents

When you are ready to print, the process is different depending on which apps you’re using. Some apps, including Google apps and third party file managers and image viewers, have a dedicated Print option in the menu.

Tap this, and select your printer from the drop down menu (it may default to the Save as PDF option). Swipe down from the top to change the print settings, such as the number of copies, page orientation, paper size, and so on. When finished, tap the printer icon to print. It’s essentially the same as printing from your desktop.
Not all apps have a print option. If you want to print from one that doesn’t, you can install the printshare print service app from the Playstore. Once you have installed and activated this free app you’ll find a new PrinterShare option will appear under the Share menu in many apps.

Tap this, and you can access any printers setup on your Android device, including those you have registered as Cloud Print printers. Tap through the various screens, including choosing the Google account your printers are registered with, and picking the specific printer, and eventually you’ll end up at the standard print screen. You can now print your document.

Print to PDF

One of the standard options you’ll see in the print settings screen is Print as PDF. This saves your chosen document as a PDF file, and is very useful for sharing documents in a format that is easily readable on virtually any device.

Print to Any Printer

It may not be as important to print files as it used to be, but when you need to do it, there’s no other option. Google Cloud Print’s ability to print to any printer, and from anywhere, makes it an essential service. If you need to print your pdf, important emails, or just your photos you you took on an event, it’s easy to do it straight from your Android phone.
