      Brother HL-2280DW does not support cloud print. Go to the Brother website and see for yourself.

        I came here to make the same comment. I have the 2280dw and it doesn’t support cloud print.

        Google has some sort of weird problem with printing. I remember having to wait until just a few years ago to be able to print from chrome without it putting page headers and footers, when I never wanted them.

      The one recommended in the article is the 2380 – not the 2280. Could that be the problem?

      All too true. Bought the printer before switching to Chrome. Love the printer, hate the fact can’t use it.
      Wonder if connecting it to a VPN of local wifi network would work?

    I purchased a Canon MX 472 Cloud Ready printer. I purchased it to print from my Chrome book. It only works occasionally. I cannot rely on it. It appears that Cloud Print technology
    Is not that reliable even with printers that are advertised as Cloud Print Ready. Can I be assured that the printers on this page are guaranteed to reliably provide that service?

    […] like a pro. There are of course many more things that could go into your Chromebook ecosphere like the right cloud printer  or a nice lap desk for comfortable computing on the couch or in your La-Z-boy […]

    I wish someone would answer these questions. I have a Samsung Chromebook. What printer will work properly with my machine? The price range is wild: $25–$1014,99, Is the most expensive printer really 40 times better than the cheapest?

      Buy the least expensive model that meets your needs. Look at Brother HL 2270DW.

    Sorry, a Cloud Printer is not for me until further development occurs. Or, someone can recommend a reasonably priced printer (under $100) that is easy and guaranteed to operate. I did a search on Amazon, and the reviews are mixed. A lot of users who are far more tech savvy than I experience considerable challenges with machines that are supposedly “Cloud Ready.” I’m not up to it yet.

      The cloud printer that I have was less than $100 and it is the HP Envy series. I have been very happy with this printer once I was able to set it up with my computer.

      The Brother MFC-J480DW is under $90 – in fact I only paid $60 at Staples recently. It is a color inkjet with ADF, FAX & Scanner. Brother has a CloudPrint manual online (https://goo.gl/0rTVWV) and if you follow the instructions it will be up and running in less than 5 minutes. I also like that the ink is very inexpensive if you buy E-Z Ink brand (good quality, no leaks) on Amazon. I’ve always had very good luck with Brother printers and bought this for my 90+ young mom who still sends fax’s. Note: If you have an “always on” PC running in your home just about any networked printer can join CloudPrint if the PC is left on. If you have a ChromeBook only, you’ll need a CloudPrint labeled printer.

    I have an HP Envy series wireless printer for my Hisense Chromebook. I had to call HP to help me set up the printer after several unsuccessful tries. I am very happy with this printer and would recommend to all chromebook users.

    I recently purchased a chromebook hisense and a cannon pixma mg 2520 and this printer was not compatible, so i had to resend it back. Are there any printers that I do not have to connect to a desktop to print from my laptop? my desk top computer is broke.

      Most cloud-ready printers need an interface to set them up. Mine required either another computer or a wifi router that has Wifi Protected Setup (WPS).

    I just purchased the Canon PIXMA MG2920 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One and it does not work with my Samsung Chromebooks!
    I’ve spent hours trying with no success at all.
    I think I’ll be returning the printer as it’s of no use to me if I can’t get t to work with the Chromebooks.

    I have a Samsung Chromebook Model XE 500C12 and Google Cloud and need printer/scanner/fax capability with WIFI-
    Which of these is the best for that and the least expensive?

      Since the prices and available models change so fast, I recommend you do a fresh Google search looking for “google cloud print all-in-one.” Then filter by items with reviews of 4 stars and up. This URL will do that search: http://amzn.to/2bXGMZr. The Canon MG6821 is looking like the best right now. It’s also on sale at Best Buy right now for the exact same price: http://bit.ly/2ciwrWj.

      Keep in mind that you may need a Windows computer that can connect to the printer so that you can connect your printer to your wifi network. That was the case with my HP.
