Epson Supports Android KitKat Native Printing for Anywhere, Anytime Mobile Printing


Long Beach, CA—In an effort to drive simple wireless printing anywhere, anytime, Epson America announced support for Android Printing, the native printing platform introduced in Android KitKat (v4.4).

With Android Printing, mobile users can print photos, documents, web pages and e-mails without the need for a dedicated printing app. Over 60 new and legacy Epson Connect-enabled printers and all-in-ones now offer built-in printing support from manufacturers that include Google, HTC and Samsung.

“We applaud Google’s introduction of Android Printing as a huge milestone that makes mobile printing easier for both users and app developers,” said Patrick Chen, product manager of mobile connectivity, Epson America. “That’s why Epson is proud to embrace Android Printing with support for both new and legacy printers as far back as 2008. Now with just a few taps, KitKat users can print to Epson printers from a number of preinstalled Google apps today with the promise of print support from a whole new generation of apps available on Google Play.”

Android Printing enables Android device users to print seamlessly without the need for a specific printing app. Users can discover available printers, change paper sizes and choose specific pages to print. Following a download of the free Epson Print Enabler and a few steps, users can print photos, e-mails, web content and documents to any compatible Epson printer model from Chrome, Drive, Gallery, Gmail, Photos and Quickoffice apps, as well as new apps available on Google Play.

In addition, Epson is a member of the Mopria Alliance, further underscoring its dedication to advancing mobile printing standards that allow users to easily and conveniently print regardless of brand, device or operating system.
