Chromebook Printing

Easy printing from your Chromebook to your Xerox printer.


Chromebooks are lightweight computers based on Google’s Chrome OS. They include a range of productivity cloud apps for knowledge workers, such as Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and more, without the need to purchase additional software.

The lightweight, simplified IT management makes Chromebooks popular and well suited to the education market, among others.

As an individual Chromebook owner, however, printing can be a challenge if you don’t have a compatible printer.

As an organisation, managing setup and access to your printers in a controlled way can be difficult.

Regardless of your needs, Xerox® printers and software solutions can help.

For individual Chromebook owners

For individual Chromebook owners, Xerox has a broad range of compatible printers and MFPs that support the basic need to print over a local network.


  • Simple to set up.

  • No drivers to install or additional software.

Key Challenges

  • Desire to print from your most popular applications.
