With Android Printing, mobile users can effortlessly print documents, photos, web pages and emails – without the need for a dedicated printing app. Over 100 new and legacy Epson-Connect enabled printers and all-in-ones now offer built-in printing support for the latest AndroidTM smartphones and tablets from manufacturers including Google®, HTC® and Samsung®.

“Epson is proud to support the new built-in Android Printing feature introduced in KitKat,” said Kevin Toes, Epson Europe. “It’s a major leap forward for Android users and developers alike.
