Contrary to what you might hear, you can print from a Chromebook, but it isn’t quite as easy as it might be with other computers. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you can’t ever print from your Chromebook. The following printers are among the best Google Cloud printers. You can connect with a Chromebook for printing from the device and don’t require a complex set-up.
Best for the office

Designed specifically for the office with its 500-paper capacity, the Canon Office IB4120 printer works with multiple devices and is great at home, too.
Simple and cost effective

Not only can you print wirelessly, but the refillable ink reservoirs last up to two years so you can print without having to worry about getting more ink.

What you need to print from a Chromebook
Having a Chromebook can be amazing, but it can also be stressful when some things weren’t made with your device or Google Cloud Print in mind. Fortunately, these printers are compatibl, not to mention speedy, secure, and use quality ink/toner. If we had to pick a favorite, we’d go for the Canon Office MAXIFY IB4120 Printer due to its personal features, as well as it being able to connect to multiple devices at once.
The HP Envy 5055 printer is also a great deal. It allows you to print from tons of different cloud services, including Google and more, and you can even automatically re-order ink using an HP Instant Ink subscription so you never run out.
We do have a special spot for the Epson EcoTank line of printers. While it costs more upfront than the others, it will pay off in the long run when you only have to buy ink refills every few years versus every month or so. You can print with ease with the Epson EcoTank ET-2720 both wirelessly or via wired connection, as well as specifically from Google Cloud Print. The all-in-one device also scans and makes copies, making it a versatile option for Chromebook users both at home or at the office.
