Mopria provides Samsung Galaxy phone users the ability to easily print
|Richard Harris in SDK Friday, November 11, 2016|
The Mopria Alliance just announced that the Mopria Print Library will be a part of the Samsung Print Service. Mopria will provide Samsung Galaxy phone users the ability to easily and intuitively print content from their mobile devices to more than 88 million1 printers, regardless of printer brand.
Mopria will power the Samsung Print Service to enable users to easily print photos, documents, web pages, boarding passes, coupons and other content directly from their gallery, email, browser and other apps with print capabilities. Prior to this integration, users were required to search and download manufacturer specific printer apps for each printer brand they encountered. As a single pre-installed system tool, the Mopria-enhanced Samsung Print Service eliminates all these steps and provides intuitive printing. The newest version of the Samsung Print Service will provide basic print settings such as paper size, number of copies, orientation, page range, color mode and double-sided print capability to also provide users with more control over their print experience.
While the Mopria-powered Samsung Print Service will support any Samsung or Android phone or tablet with Android 4.4 (KitKat) or higher, it is pre-installed and will automatically update for Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, S6 and S7 users. Users can quickly check installation status on Google Play.
In the three years since the establishment of the Mopria Alliance by founders Canon, HP, Samsung and Xerox, the nonprofit membership organization has grown to 21 members representing more than 98 percent of the worldwide printer business1. In addition to the founding companies, the Mopria Alliance today includes Adobe, Konica Minolta, Qualcomm, Lexmark, Kyocera, Toshiba, Brother, Epson, Fuji Xerox, NEC, Pantum, Ricoh, YSoft, Avision, Sharp, Dell and Primax.
While the Mopria Alliance will continue its efforts to make mobile printing easy, it will also expand its focus to standardizing cloud printing, scanning, security and mobile device management (MDM) with the goal to make these solutions more accessible and intuitive for both consumer and business users.
