HP Smart App won't connect to printer

HP Recommended

I have an HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 that is successfully connect to my home Wi-Fi. I can successfully print from other devices wirelessly (laptop and desktop) while on the same Wi-Fi network.

 

What I can't seem to do is have the printer recognized as online/available via the HP Smart app using a Samsung S10 5G. The app is up to date on the mobile device, has the HP Smart print services enabled in SETTINGS - > CONNECTIONS - > MORE CONNECTION SETTINGS - > PRINTING.

 

The app does show the printer name but never shows connected despite the printer being powered on and accessible by other devices.

My device software is up to date as is the printer. I checked both device updates prior to reaching out to support. I also had checked to ensure that I had the latest HP Smart app version installed (I did).  For notation sake, the "Printer Update Options" has been set to 'Install Automatically' since purchasing the printer more than a year ago.

 

Any other suggestions?

Additionally, I had installed and uninstalled the HP Smart app prior to reaching out to support.

 

This did not resolve the issue and was, in fact, the first troubleshooting steps I had tried.
