Print by Connecting a Canon Printer to a Phone

If you want to be able to print from your Canon printer by connecting to your Phone, then take a look below for how to print from a Phone on a Canon printer.

Procedure 1: Print from your Phone with Cloud Print:

  • Open the file you’d like to print (anything from Google Drive docs to pictures stored on your phone).
  • Select the Menu button (the three dots in the top right corner).
  • Slick on Print option..
  • Select the ‘down‘ arrow (next to Save as PDF)
  • Select the printer you want to print from. If you can’t find it off the bat, select All printers to bring up a list of options
  • Once you’re all set, click the Print button (usually printer-shaped).

Procedure 3: Print text messages on your phone

For printing text messages specifically, the easiest option is to use an app like the conveniently named SMS Backup & Restore. This app simply backs up your SMS messages to your phone, email, or cloud services like Dropbox or Google Drive. Just backup the conversations you want to your preferred destination (I found backing them up to Gmail works quite well) and then navigate to where the files are stored. For example, backup your files to Gmail, then go to your Gmail account and select the “print” option in the options menu to print them.

Note- Google cloud Print services are compatible to use with Android devices. You can install it to add the Printer. Open the app, Pick the Printer to start printing your documents
