After all, Epson Cloud can make your printing job easier. Thanks to the technology, you should be able to enjoy seamless and more convenient operation and running with your printer.
Understanding Epson Cloud Functionality
Do you have a Google account? If yes, then you should be able to print with your Epson printer through your Android or Apple devices.
This feature also enables you to print from Google Chrome browser and Chromebooks without you having to use cables or even drivers.
Moreover, you can also perform scans (provided that the printer also supports scanning feature) and then send the files to your cloud.
You only need to set the printer up for the network print, and then follow the given instructions to ensure successful Epson Cloud setup
How to Manage the Setup
- Check whether your computer and your printer have been connected to the SAME network before starting the setup
- You can print the (status) sheet of the network
- Find the printer’s IP address from that sheet
- Feed the address to the web browser’s address bar
- Opt for Google Cloud printing service. If you don’t see this option, turn off the printer for a while and then turn it back on again. If you still don’t see it, choose Firmware Update. It means that you need to update the printer.
