Print from an Android phone or tablet
The print function is not delivered with a new Android phone or tablet. The USB port on a phone or tablet will support certain printer interfaces. There are some printers that will connect directly, see below, but these printers will only work with your Android device. But, with the addition of some software, you can print from an Android phone or tablet easily.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab with the latest TouchWiz interface, you can print directly to a WiFi printer, assuming you have permissions to connect to the printer.
The Android Market has a few apps that allow you to print directly to a Wi-Fi printer, check them out here –> WiFi Print Apps.
Google Cloud Print has been discontinued as of December 31, 2020. You can print to a printer via a WiFi connection or a mobile network.
