Introduction:Google Cloud Print is a free online service developed by Google that enables you to print from any device that can connect to the Internet. Google Cloud Print works with most printers and is compatible with both PCs and Macs.A printer attached to your computer or network is called a Cloud Ready Printer.Cloud Connected Printers can be accessed via the web, mobile apps, or using Google Cloud Print.Cloud Ready Printers:Google Cloud Ready Printers are printers spd by various computer manufacturers with embedded support for Google Cloud Print. These printers include additional software that enables them to interact with Google Cloud Print.Cloud Ready Printers can have the Google Cloud Print feature turned on, off, or partially on.A Cloud Ready Printer that has been turned on will appear in your list of Cloud Ready Printers in the Google Cloud Print Web UI. A printer that has been turned off will appear in the list but with an orange icon next to it. A partially enabled printer is a printer that either does not have the correct software installed or does not have the correct driver installed. This type of printer will appear in your list of Cloud Ready Printers in the Google Cloud Print Web UI with a yellow exclamation point icon next to it.Cloud Ready Printers can be set up manually or automatically. Manually enabling a printer requires you to select the printer model, download the appropriate driver, and install it on your computer. Automatically enabling a printer requires you to select the printer model, download and run a small initialization file, and then restart your computer.Automatically enabling a printer is done through a system called plug and play. Plug and play is a system that allows your computer to recognize and configure devices automatically when they are connected to a USB port or other external port. In order for plug and play to work, all of the hardware and software requirements must be met. If your computer has been configured so that plug and play devices can be automatically detected, you will not be prompted to manually install drivers or software when you connect a new printer to your computer. If you see a prompt for installation of drivers or software, then you already have plug and play configured correctly on your computer.
Integration of Google CloudPrint and Slack:Google CloudPrint is integrated into Slack through the Slackbot ([email protected]. The Slackbot can be used as a way for users to print documents directly from their Slack channels without having to go through the hassle of installing printer drivers on their computers or setting up manual printing jobs on their printers. All that is needed is for users to send files that they want to print to the Slackbot in their Slack channel. The Slackbot will either print the file for you, save the file for future printing, or make it available for you to download directly onto your device. If printing is enabled for the channel that you are in, then when you send a file to the Slackbot, it will be printed immediately if there is an available printer. The Slackbot will tell you how many printers are available in the current channel, how many more pages each available printer has left before it runs out of paper, and how long it will take for an available printer to print your document if you request it to do so. When printing directly from Slack, users do not need to worry about whether or not they have printer drivers installed on their computers or if they have set up manual printing jobs on their printers because everything happens automatically through the Slackbot.The integration between Google Cloud Print and Slack opens up several possibilities for business and personal use. One example of business use would be if an employee frequently sends documents to his coworkers through email attachments but his coworkers often forget to open those attachments, then he could just send it to the Slackbot instead and then they could receive it directly through Slack instead of receiving an email attachment that they might forget to open. Another example of business use would be if an employee frequently prints out contracts but then forgets where he put them after he prints them out, then he could just have the contracts printed out directly onto wherever he wants them without having to go through the process of finding them again later because they'd be printed directly onto whatever he has chosen. The integration also opens up some possibilities for personal use as well such as if someone frequently loses his phone while he's out and about but always knows where he hangs his keys because he always hangs them on his bedroom dresser before he goes out, then he could set his phone up so that when it's lost, it'll ring in his bedroom dresser drawer until he finds it. Or if someone frequently loses his keys but always knows where his phone is because he sets his phone down every time he comes home and plugs it into the charger, then he could set up something similar to where his keys ring in his pocket until he finds them because they'll be right next to his phone wherever he puts his phone down.
