This means if you want to print any documents or photos saved on Galaxy S9 or S9+, you can directly print then from the phone, instead of copying them to a PC to print.
Most printer manufacturers have released their own apps for their printers. These apps usually also provide wireless printing features, in addition to other features.
This Galaxy S9 guide shows you how to set up and use wireless printing with the Android build-in printing feature, as well as with the vendor’s app.
What do you need to use wireless printing on Galaxy S9 and S9+?
To use wireless printing on Galaxy S9 or S9+, you need:
- A wireless printer. If your printer can only use the USB connection to the PC, you have to use Google Cloud print, we will discuss it in other guides.
- A WiFi network which can be used by the printer and your phone (Galaxy S9 and S9+). Ethernet also works.
- A plugin for your printer. Almost all major printer vendors released the Android plugin in Google Play store. This guide will show you how to get it.
In this guide, we assume your Galaxy S9 or S9+ is connected to the same wireless router as the wireless printer. If not, you have to use Google cloud print, which is covered here (coming soon).
Steps of setting up wireless printing on Galaxy S9 and S9+
To print wirelessly from Galaxy S9 or S9+ to your printer, you need to install the print service for the brand of the printer you are using.
Wireless printing services (the plugin) on Android are provided by individual manufacturers. They are similar to the printer drivers on the PC. But on Android, typically, you only need to have one driver from (for) one vendor, instead of one for each printer. For example, if you have two different HP printers (both support wireless printing), you only need to install HP printer plugin once.
