One thought on “How to print from Kindle Fire HD using Cloud Print/airprint Free

  1. Problem: No printers are displayed in EasyPrint
    I followed steps one to three. I can see my printers on my Laptop in Google Chrome and print. I can even use my Kindle Fire HD with the built in Browser and print a test page from a Google URL >> that made me very optimistic.
    However, in EasyPrint I cannot see any of my printers although I have signed into the same Google Account. I have also tried refreshing the printer list and restarting my Kindle.
    Do I have to install Google Chrome on my Kindle?
    Any ideas what I should do next?
