Hi @Ciantars,


I'd like to help!


Print from your Android OS 5.0 or later device to your printer using the HP Print Service Plugin.


Step 1: Install the HP Print Service Plugin

Install the HP Print Service Plugin on your Android OS 5.0 or later, and then turn on the plugin.


Menus, icons, and the location of the print settings vary by Android version and device manufacturer.

  1. Confirm your Android device is connected to the same network as your printer, or that Wi-Fi Direct on your printer and Android device is enabled.

  2. On your Android device, install or update the HP Print Service Plugin (in English).

  3. Once the installation or update is complete, choose your Android device to turn on the plugin:

    • Android 7 (Nougat) and later devices: The HP Print Service Plugin turns on automatically after installation. Continue with these steps.

    • Android 6 (Marshmallow) and earlier devices: Tap Settings, search for and open HP Print Service, and then tap On.

  4. Turn off any other print service plugins, if necessary.

Your Android device is now ready to print using the HP Print Service Plugin.

Step 2: Print with the HP Print Service Plugin

Print photos, documents, emails, or webpages from Android apps that provide a Print option on their menu.
