Google Cloud Print will fold in 2020


GOOGLE’S GRIM REAPER has struck again, and this time its swung its scythe at the thousands of ancient printers given a new lease of life by Google Cloud Print. The company has sent out emails to GSuite admins telling them they have just over a year to say their goodbyes to the decade-old service. It’ll stop working on 31 December 2020, meaning you’ll have time to show off your clipart skills with one last set of New Year’s Eve party invites before the service finally runs out of ink.

“Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will no longer be able to print using Google Cloud Print,” the company’s support page says. “We recommend that over the next year, you identify an alternative solution and execute a migration strategy.”
