The cloud print option is going to be an incorporated featured in the upcoming Chrome version. It has particularly aimed at improving and enhancing the simplicity and convenience of printing. This new feature has been released initially in the spring.

To make use of the Cloud Print option, while you have a Google account, you need to setup printer drivers with them in a cloud. When you keep them decentralized with Cloud Print, you can stay away from any kinds of disturbances mainly concerning printer’s setup. The documents that need to be printed can be sent to Google where they can be modified and then intended to be transformed into a hard copy.

The Apple’s AirPrint feature is somewhat compatible with the Google’s Cloud Print feature is pretty much comparable to that of Google. The ePrint function is a built-in characteristic available in the latest HP printers and it is compared to the Chrome’s new feature. With the ePrint feature, the printers are assigned with an email ID to a particular user whom you want to send documents and that can be added in the print queue.

Presently, there are no Cloud Print based printers available in the market. With the chrome’s beta version, Google has integrated this functionality. Currently, it is only supported by Windows platform; nevertheless, others are expected soon.

Cloud Print is a significant feature associated with Chrome OS. This new operating system is particularly related to transference and this is what precisely what Cloud Print was proposed for, the delegation of printing mechanics.

Gmail adds Drag & Drop facility to attach files

This is one of the feature which I was looking for. Gmail has added a new exciting feature to it and you don’t have to go to Gmail Labs to activate it as it is the default option. To attach the file, you do not have to click attach file, then browse for it and finally attach. Now you can do it in one simple step. Just drag and drop the file where Attach Files is written and you will notice that Gmail will prompt you whether to Drop these files to attach. You can drop the files and they will be attached. I must say its a very nice feature and Google has once again rocked in innovation. The option is compatible for Google Chrome and Firefox only as they are also working to make it compatible with other browsers as well
