Chrome Allows You to Print the Document Directly at the Nearest FedEx Store

I know I know. We have company store FedEx in Brazil along the lines of American network. Still, it is interesting to note that Google today updated the operation of the Cloud Print technology supporting nearly two thousand FedEx US stores. I mean the following: users Chrome may send print the current document through the Cloud Print, and pick up the document in any of the network store.


Cloud Print for those who do not remember, is the protocol invented by Google to end the wires when printing documents. Attitude particularly interesting for a company with users on the mobile device (running Android) and ultra conectados computers (running Chrome OS). Cloud Print serves to end the wires and make life easier for all these people (more on Android than in Chome OS, we have to admit).

In the screenshot to the side, provided by Google, we see a device with Android offering various interactions with a document. Among them, the printing on a FedEx store or in equipment from Canon. Google explains that by choosing FedEx, a protocol will be generated that the client must take to the store and tell the attendant to that, only then, the document is printed.

Google announces yet reached an agreement with Canon for the multinational company to start producing printers and MFPs with technology that supports Cloud Print.

Since they are slapping the operation of the Cloud Print, also took the opportunity to facilitate document sharing. Who have Chrome installed on the host PC and the combination of Ice Cream Sandwich and browser Chrome for Android (still in beta) will have the option to have the document open today as PDF to the mobile device. It will open in a Chrome Beta screen.

I’m hoping that Google’s Brazil office is working to add local stores to options Cloud Print. Not everyone has printer at home (I myself have not). Give the option to send to a nearby shop makes life much easier. Much.
