How to Print from Kindle Fire HDX and Android Tablet: So you’re caring for your Kindle Fire tablet: Keying in Office, reviewing a spreadsheet within Google Docs, or reading a PDF in Adobe Acrobat, and suddenly you get that you must print out your document.
That presents an issue, but luckily it’s also one I will allow you to solve.
Most Android tablets and smartphones not have the USB cable and printer drivers PCs use to speak, however that will not keep you from printing a file; it simply means you will need to find and install the app that will give you Android device speak with the printer.
Most printers created in 2016 are designed for connecting with a Wifi or wired network, which means your Android device must be able to print files on any printer on a single network.
Here are a few methods of that you try this.
Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet
When you have a Fire tablet, Amazon Kindle Fire efforts to allow you. There is a help page on Amazon.com with instructions and links up to the more commonly-used printer plugins found in the Amazon appstore:
- Canon Print Plugin
- Epson Print Plugin
- HP Print Plugin
- Ricoh Print Plugin
- Samsung Print Plugin
Note: The apps as listed above won’t print your file for you. Instead, they support other apps talk with your printer. When you install among the apps as listed above, go open whatever app you are working on before and then print from that app.
When you can print the file, awesome.
Though if you can’t print the file, or you can’t install among the plugins as listed above (I will be having problems) then you will want to use another thing.
How to Print From your Android Device
Here’s my sure-file method for printing form an Android device.
1. I wide open the app store in my tablet (Google Play, Amazon Appstore, etc) and search for your model printer I must use and also the words “printer apps”.
2. That search query usually finds the state app from your printer’s manufacturer, in addition to many free third-party apps that fill a similar need.
3. Starting using the official app, I install and then play one printer app each time. The instant I have found one that works with my printer and table, I stop.
Note: Many of the printer apps you install can have you print docs from the inside that app, while some will act as a person and allow you to print from chrome, Adobe Acrobat, or even office app. This behavior varies, so you’ll need to fluked it.
From instance, I had an RCA tablet located on my desk at this time which has the official Epson app installed. That app will print office docs personally; using my Epson printer. I will even print other activities like webpages first by saving them like a PDF and next with all the Epson app to print the PDF.
But that is me; you may not have a similar luck.
Whenever you can print the file, great.
Or even, I have got another suggestion.
Google Cloud Print
Google provides a standard method to print from Kindle Fire and other mobile phones. Think of it as Google Cloud Print. This platform enables you to print from Google Docs or from Chrome in your Android device.
Google Cloud Print requires this you firstly setup the printer you wish to use thus it will work with GCP, this is why I have not completed it. It was not worthy of additional work.
Even So did collect a few teams of instructions in how to work it and print files.
- How to Print from Android
- How to Print from the Android phone or tablet
Note: If you’re in the office with lots of Android devices and multiple printer, the best long-term solution will be to setup all of the printers so that they work using Google Cloud Print. That produce it simpler for any visitors to print your file, and this should save them from needing to scramble to install any printer app.
To get more information, relate to this Google Cloud Print page at Google.
Edited to provide: I am silly for forgetting this, but someone reminded me which I forgot to credit my competitor, which earlier that week also wrote similar post on printing in the Kindle Fire tablet.
