Android 11 Includes Mopria Alliance’s Code Contribution to Enable Enhanced Print Capabilities

Share

The Mopria® Alliance, a global non-profit organization providing universal standards and solutions for print and scan, today announced Android 11 includes new print capabilities and enhancements contributed by the Alliance in collaboration with the Google Android team.

A new “Share-to-Print” feature of the Android Default Print Service enables users to print images and documents from thousands of social media and productivity applications directly from their Android device. Practically any Android app that allows users to share files such as JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF and PDF, now also includes a convenient and simple option to print those items as well.

Additionally, the “Share-to-Print” path for photo printing supports specific enhancements to ensure best fit and higher resolution on the printed page. These enhancements result in high-quality prints, regardless of aspect ratio of the photo or size of the print.

“With this update, we set out to integrate print features that would make the lives of mobile users easier and continue to push the envelope of what we can provide in the Default Print Service,” said Ingrid Kelly, Chairperson of the Board at the Mopria Alliance. “We achieved those goals in the Android 11 update, and we are excited to continue to invest in and demonstrate our commitment to providing an enhanced printing experience for Android users.”

For people wanting to maximize the features available in their printers that may not be supported by the Default Print Service, the update adds on-the-fly selection of other brand-specific print services and the Mopria Print Service. Users are able to select and install these additional print services directly in their print workflow to enable even more print features.

To date, Mopria print technology has been installed on more than 2 billion devices, including Windows PCs and laptops, Android phones and tablets, FireOS tablets and ChromeOS notebooks. Mopria print technology is designed to simplify desktop printing and mobile printing to more than 4,000 printer models and more than 120 million Mopria certified printers.

The Mopria Alliance membership represents many of today’s global printer businesses, OS providers, device manufacturers and software vendors. In addition to the founding companies, Canon, HP, Samsung and Xerox, Mopria Alliance members include Adobe, Brother, EFI, Epson, Fuji Xerox, Huawei, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Microsoft, OKI Data, Pantum, Primax, Qualcomm, Ricoh, Toshiba, Xiaomi and YSoft.
