Samsung's Print Service app now supports 88 million different printers

Samsung's Print Services app — you can find it here in Google Play if it didn't come installed on your phone — has been updated to support the Mopria Print library. That means your Samsung phone can now connect to any of over 88 million printers, regardless of the brand or requirements for speciality apps.

"Samsung continues to develop easier ways for today's on-the-go consumer or business professional to print from their mobile devices that surpass the "File>Print" experience from their PCs and laptops," said Matt Smith, Vice President, Printing Solutions, Samsung Electronics America. "Adding the Mopria Print Library to Samsung Print Service is just the latest effort in our continued leadership within the Mopria Alliance to remove the barriers users face when trying to print to multiple printer brands."

We know that most of us aren't printing things from our phones, but if you've ever had to do it you know pairing a wireless printer to any phone can be a pain. This update takes all the guesswork and multiple app installs out of the picture and should provide a much better experience.

Samsung says the update is now pushing out for folks using a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, or Galaxy S7. You can read the full press release.
