Not good news - at least the documents do not provide hope that your printer is compatible with Chrome OS.

Yes, I know - but there we are...

 

Mobile Printing – Options, How-to, Help, and Information

Print from your Android, iOS, or Amazon Fire device with the HP Mobile printing app.

Read this document first.

Open the section for your printer:  Find your printer and supported applications.

What else?

 

Although NOT listed as supported - and is likely (therefore) not a solution,

Take a look at the following in hopes that the documentation is wrong about your printer:

 

Chromebook Printing and Scanning

Go to Printing with the HP Print for Chrome App for more information.

HP Print for Chrome is compatible with Chrome browser v44 and later installed on a Chromebook, or Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.
