    Ok. So I have an HP color laserjet 200 (wonderful printer by the way). The HP AirPrint is wonderful. I've heard that android also has a wireless printing capability but I see conflicting information on how and what to do to get it enabled. Does anyone know the straight scoop of hat to do? Phones are currently on 4.3.

    I see some things about downloading an app or driver but I don't see what that is. I can't seem to find the right support page at HP to tell me either. Do I have to update printer firmware?

    Any help appreciated....

    Just got that printer for Christmas. You are right, it is a nice printer. You need to download the HP eprint app. It is available from Google play.

    ok. I'll take a look, thanks. Does it work with current Android or only KitKat? Is there setup on the printer?

    Running it on jelly bean. Works fine. The setup you need in on the phone. You will need the password from your printer to input when you do the setup.

    Yes. On the printers control panel, go into the wireless menu>wireless direct settings>view passphrase.

    Ok. Installed. Got activation code from hp. Printed from camera files and web from within app. I take it you can't print natively from chrome or something like that? Didn't see any menu option in chrome for printing....
