Steps to Wirelessly Print From Your Tablet or Smartphone

While the entire world is going paperless, there are still some examples where printouts are a must. In a pinch, which could mean having to print directly from your mobile phone. Luckily, both Android and iOS now support printing directly from your mobile phone. You can send your documents to any particular printer, so long as you are on the same wireless network and you know how to add it.
Printing from your mobile phone is not that hard – if you have an iPhone, it is a built-in feature that you can access by clicking the share button on files or documents, depending on which application you are in. Most of the Android smartphones also have printing capabilities built in, but if your device is not giving you an option to connect, you will have to download the Google Cloud Print application.
