Google Chrome for iOS updated to support AirPrint and CloudPrint

Google updated it’s Chrome browser for iOS to support Apple’s AirPrint feature as well as Google’s own Cloud Print service. While AirPrint has been available on iOS for some time, the Cloud Print service is arguably more useful because it doesn’t require an AirPrint-compatible printer. It can print to a Cloud Print-compatible printer, of course, but it’s more useful because it can also save the web page as a PDF in your Google Drive account. And if you have the Google Drive app as well, then your document is just a few taps away.

You’ll need to be signed in to your Google account, of course. You just tap the menu button on the right side of the address bar, then choose AirPrint or Cloud Print. If you choose Cloud Print, it prompts you to sign in to your Google Account, and then saves the page as a PDF in your Google Drive Account.

This seems like a minor update but it’s a very welcome update, and for me it’s just promoted Google Chrome from a backup browser on my iPhone and iPad to Safari’s equal, and I’ll probably be using Chrome as much as I do Safari.
