As Google seem to be committed to ending Google Cloud Print, I'm looking for a suitable alternative;

 

We have two printers and need to print from desktops (Mac and PC), mainly from web browsers and the two printers are standalone and in different locations.

 

I think the issue will be that they are standalone - has HP come up with a solution where a user can print to the printers MAC address?  Emailing is not viable.

 

Help appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Jamie

Unfortunately, it doesn't - that only works for the local network.

 

Is HP working on a solution to be able to print to the MAC address from the Print Dialogue (and not email or use the app)?

 

I want to be able to print offsite to a standalone printer as I do with GCP with ease.
