HP Smart app for Chromebook: HP Smart App work on Chromebook

  • alt text
    Fortunately, printing on Chrome OS has come a long way in recent years. In some circumstances, setting up a wireless printer or the HP Smart app for Chromebook and using it with a Chromebook is easier than with other operating systems. This is partly due to the fact that Chromebooks don't need drivers or apps to use network printers. We'll look at how easy it is to connect an HP all-in-one printer to your wireless network using just your smartphone today. After that, your Chromebook will detect the printer and you'll be able to print without the need for any additional software, extensions, or plugins. To see how it's done, go here.

    From start to finish, this process should take less than five minutes, and your HP printer should display under available devices in your Chromebook's settings once completed.

    Important Fact
    • This is all done through the HP Smart app on your phone. It can be downloaded for free at 123.hp.com.
    • The HP Smart software is available for Windows and Mac if you'd rather set up the printer on a different computer.
    • Keep in mind that there is no all-in-one print solution for Chrome OS for now. I've tested and used a half-dozen HP consumer models, and they all run Chrome OS beautifully once connected to a Wi-Fi network.
    • You can run into an HP printer that isn't compatible with the HP Smart app. If this is the case, the HP Print for Chrome extension will very surely allow your Chromebook to connect to your wireless printer.
