Chrome OS native printing functionality

I am unable to connect my chromebook to my Pixma TR7520 via wifi "native printing functionality".  Is it possible?

Greetings,

The TR7520 is not cloud print ready.

 

https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/printers/

 

But you can try connecting it:

 

https://support.google.com/cloudprint/answer/1686197?visit_id=637410512812401361-3442402412&rd=1

 

Also be aware of the following:

Google Cloud Print, Google's cloud-based printing solution will no longer be supported as of December 31, 2020. Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will not be able to print using Cloud Print. We recommend that you find an alternative print solution with your respective platform's printing infrastructure.

Re: Chrome OS native printing functionality

Thanks Rick.  I am looking for a way to print wirelessly from my Chromebook to my Canon TR7250  printer over my home network after 12/31.  Per Canon:

 

  • You will be able to set up your printer to print directly from your Chrome device using the native printing functionality within the Chrome OS.

Canon lists TR7500 series printers as supported by Chrome OS.

 

I've followed the instructions but they don't work.  Do you have any suggestions?   Thanks.

 

John

Don't believe everything that you read.

 

Ignore Canon's statemnt about Chromebook native printing.  It was misquoted, taken from Google out of context. 

Google never said that every Cloud Print capable printer "will be able" towork with natve printing, but offered native printing as an option for printers that are compatible with basic IPP.  

 

Canon has no statement anywhere on their websites that says that ANY Canon printer will EVER work with Chrome OS native printing, and it is very unlikely that they will ever create new firmware for old printers.
