Our drivers and software are only compatible with the latest Windows or Mac OSX computer. Although it may be possible to print on a Chromebook through the Google Cloud Print service, you cannot scan with a Chromebook.
In this case, if you do not have a standard Windows or Mac OSX computer, you will have to scan using the Canon PRINT app on your Android device.

ou are misinformed.
1. Canon has a Pixma/Selphy app for Android maintained in the Google Play Store.
2. That app works for printing and for scanning to a folder created during installation in the Android app data file structure.
3. Many Chromeboks now support Android apps and more will soon.
4. Canon's Pixma/Selphy app is not flagged as incompatible with Chrome devices. When Chromebooks having access to the Google Play Store, the app can be installed.

I just bought the MX492, installed the Android Pixma/Selphy app on my Chromebook. It is unable to find the printer. It remains at "searching for printers." I believe I have set up the printer properly from the control panel. Google Cloud print works fine as does Air print. Since I am trying to scan documents I need the Selphy app to work. Any help?

Currently at this time the Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy app is not supported with a Chromebook. As a work around if you have a Andorid or iOS mobile phone or tablet, you can scan to that device and then send it to your Chromebook.
