Chrome OS

The app updated recently on my laptop, and now it won't let me print without logging in to my account. The problem is, when I try to login, and it takes me back to the app, it stays stuck on the "thank you for your patience" loading screen and never leaves. My printer and laptop are on the same network, I have zero internet issues, and I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app/program. I can print from my phone's app but it's extremely frustrating. I've even left my computer open for an hour to see if it would eventually load in.

Apologies, the app is the HP Smart app.

HP Smart app is not compatible with ChromeOS. You may refer to - HP Printers - Printing with the HP Print for Chrome App

 

To print from the Chrome browser, install HP Print for Chrome from the Chrome Web Store.

  1. Open the Chrome browser, and then go to HP Print for Chrome (in English).

    HP Print for Chrome app window opens.

  2. Click ADD TO CHROME, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

    The HP Print for Chrome window opens.

  3. Close the window, and then continue to the next step.
