Google has officially announced that Google Cloud Print services will be shut down on December 31, 2020. Google introduced the Cloud Print service in April 2010, as a solution for printing developed for the Chrome OS. At first, it was strange to say goodbye to this product, but this time around, Google said that the Chrome feature had been in beta for so long.

Google's support page issued, "Cloud Print, Google’s cloud-based printing solution that has been in beta since 2010, will no longer be supported as of December 31, 2020. Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will no longer be able to print using Google Cloud Print. We recommend that over the next year, you identify an alternative solution and execute a migration strategy."

Google Cloud Print have been operating in Android for around 10 years and Google said that the opportunity to move ahead is finally here. The feature is much easier for Chromebooks to pair to printers and take prints while comparing to Windows or macOS. If you will depend on Google's Cloud Print services, you may need to get the aid of an old fashioned cable printer to complete your prints. It's a disappointment by Google to cease such a helpful feature for users. Users can’t seem to understand why Google develops more products and features and take decisions to stop more useful services that are already in the market.
