Scanning when using a Chromebook is not a feature that is supported by the Chrome OS.
 
If you have an item that you wish to scan with your PIXMA MX922 and then save it on your Chromebook, you can can and save the item to a USB flash drive and then insert that flash drive into your Chromebook and move it to its hard drive.
 
To scan with your PIXMA MX922 and save to a USB flash drive, please view this page of the PIXMA MX922's On Line Manual:

Yes, that's what I had read. When I purchased the printer from Amazon, the description said it was compatible with chromebook for printing (cloud) and for scanning. It didn't mention flash drive so thought I could scan to email or to the cloud and then print. Guess not. Unfortunate.

Which Canon Print app? The Canon Print Inkjet/SEPHY does not work, and if it did, wouldn't it only work with Android apps?

Canon's Android app requires the printer to be in the same unfirewalled subnet as the computer. Chromebook "hides" the virtual Android environment to its own network space, so Canon's Android app fails to detect any printers or scanners. If they just let the user type in the IP address of the printer/scanner, the app would work. But they don't allow that, so the app doesn't work on Chromerbooks.

 

However, I've discovered an Android app that can be used for scanning on Chromebooks: Mopria Scan. I have used it successfully on my Chromebook for scanning images with my Canon TS8300-series printer/scanner.
