How do I print an email? There’s no share option

Danial McKenna 21 February 2018 at 10:11 am

Hi PJ, thanks for getting in touch.

You aren’t able to Share emails with the app in order to print them. If the printer you are using supports Google Cloud Print, then the best method is to set up cloud print and then use this to print your emails this way.
It may also be possible to print emails using a print app, but this would depend on the make and model of the printer you are using. The best option would be to contact the printer manufacturer directly for advice on printing from android.

I hope this helps.

Hi there, thanks for getting in touch.

It’s whatever works best for you. You can follow the instructions shown in the article or if taking a screenshot and printing it this way works for you then that’s perfectly fine :).

I have done all that is suggested to print from my phone to my HP printer, then the phone says it needs to set up my wifi connection, my phone shows the wifi is connected but I am stuck in that screen and still not able to print a photo??

Hi Diana,

Thanks for getting in touch.

There are two ways to print from most HP printers: using wi-fi direct or having your printer connected to your router. If you wish for multiple devices to use the printer you would need to connect it to your router. When this is done you should then be able to download the HP print application through the Playstore and from here you will be able to print – as well as from all other devices on your network. If you do not have a router or do not want to use it you can use wi-fi direct. This means the printer creates a wi-fi hotspot and you connect your phone directly to it. This setting can usually be found in the network settings menu on the printer. Once this is enabled and you’re connected to the printer, you can download the application through the playstore and print.

Hope this helps,
