Google has released a Chrome browser plug-in that allows documents to be printed remotely via a smartphone.
Cloud Print is an application that runs on Chrome and outputs to a PC's printer. Android and iOS users can access Gmail on Chrome from their mobile device and print documents from their accounts.
"Let's say you need to print an important email attachment on your way to work so that it's waiting for you when you walk in the door," said Tyler Odean, from Google's Cloud Print Team, in a blog post.
"With Gmail for Mobile and Google Cloud Print, a service that allows printing from any app on any device, OS or browser without the need to install drivers, you can."
Printing is currently limited to .PDF and .DOC files using Windows 7, XP and Vista. Versions for Linux and Apple are coming soon, the firm said.
The addition is the latest in a series of Google plug-ins designed to make mobile application use easier. Google Docs was made available to mobile users in November, and has also added email synchronisation with Microsoft Exchange 2003 or 2007.
