The two sided printing option is greyed out in Android

Hi, I can print double sided from my computer, but could not print from my android phone since the Two-sided printing option is greyed out so I cannot select it. Why is that? Is there any other way I can print double sided from my android phone?

Also, if there is another way to print double sided from android, can you explain how I should arrange the papers to be printed double sided?

Printing on both sides manually can only be done from a computer, not from a mobile device, such functionality would be available would only be applicable for printers with automatic two-sided printing, not for such a model which only offer manual duplex capabilities.


You may use the Pages to Print option and manually print on both sides from a mobile device as a workaround, but this would be more complex than printing a such from a computer.


Open the document with the HP Smart app and click on Print, then click the bottom option pane and click on Page Range.

Manually select all the odd pages, confirm and print.

Now load the stack printed side facing down with the bottom edge into the tray.

Once again print the document, but this time select the even pages only and complete the print job.
