Description

Easily print photos, web pages and documents without downloading any additional apps or printing tools.

Allows you to share your life’s printable moments and stay productive at home, at work or while on the go.

The Samsung Print Service is a system tool that enables wireless printing to Samsung printers and many other printer brands by integrating Mopria technology. Nearly all new printers sold today by Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Fuji Xerox, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Pantum, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba and Xerox are Mopria-certified to make it easy to print your photos, web pages, documents, coupons, recipes and files from your favorite apps. You can even control print settings including color, number of copies, paper orientation and double-sided printing.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy phone, this system tool is already pre-installed. For any Android phone or tablet running KitKat (4.4) or higher, installing this plug-in will enable easy mobile printing from your device.

PHONE AND TABLET COMPATIBILITY
Samsung Galaxy Phones/Tablets – The Samsung Print Service plug-in is pre-installed on S4, S5, S6, S7 and many other Samsung phones & tablets. This plug-in cannot be uninstalled or moved to a SD card. When plug-in updates are available your device will notify you. Please adjust your settings to automatically update this plug‐in, or accept updates manually. For any other Galaxy phone or tablet where this Plug-in is not pre-installed, it can be downloaded and installed as long as the Samsung device is running Android KitKat (4.4) or later.

Other Android Phones/Tablets – The Samsung Print Service will work with any device with Android KitKat (4.4) or later. KitKat was the first version of Android that included the “Android Print Framework” which allows an Android App to access a built-in printing system. When updates are available for the Samsung Print Service, your device will notify you.

APPS SUPPORTING PRINT
Check to see if your Android App supports printing by looking for a print icon, checking the App’s menu option (three dots, three lines or “More” menu) or using the “Share” function.
Some everyday apps that support printing include Gallery, Photos, Chrome, Gmail, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint.
Many more apps have enabled print or allow you to share to the Samsung Print Service.

TURNING ON THE SAMSUNG PRINT SERVICE
If you are unable to locate any printers, you may need to enable the Samsung Print Service.
Go to your device “Settings” and search for “Printing” to locate the Samsung Print Service. Then toggle the switch from “Off” to “On”.

SUPPORTED PRINTERS
Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Fuji Xerox, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Pantum, Ricoh, Sharp, Toshiba and Xerox branded printers are supported. However not all models are Mopria-certified.
See http://mopria.org/certified-products to check whether your printer model is supported.

They updated it and it still doesn't work for my HP Photosmart printer. I refuse to get a new printer since it works fine for my Samsung Tablet, but I use my phone way more than my tablet. I used to love this app however since the firmware update on my Samsung Galaxy S6 I can no longer get it to work at all. Wish this would be fixed. Full Review

It keeps interrupting my HP printing app and I wish I could uninstall it. If it worked with my HP laser multifunction printer 1312nfi MFP in it's own I wouldn't have to install the HP app as well and have the conflict. My printer is connected to my router by USB and your Samsung app seems to not be able to find it without me unplugging the modem, the, and printer and resetting everything when it is lost.

I did use it a few years ago. It was a very reliable printer, copier, facsimile machine whilst we had it. It was also cheap to run in as far as powder consumption, it also used second hand cartridges without any concerns. It had very few paper eating incidents which also indicates how well it was built. We later gave the unit to our Son where it is still being employed by them and is it too is showing them it's a very good and reliable printer. Knowing my Son he keep it until it starts to break-down and until unreliable. There it is for you. Guy Hamilton Martin Full Review

That's all I've ever owned is CANON, why change now. The only reason I get new ones is cuz it's hard to find ink for an outdated printer! That's all folks !! Full Review

Please provide patch to delete Samsung Factory installed apps in Android 4. and above. People hate it when Factory apps take up all the phone memory. THIS INCREASES THE CHANCE OF PEOPLE NOT BUYING SAMSUNG THE NEXT TIME.JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE DEVELOPED AN UNLIKABILITY OF THE SAMSUNG PHONES THEY CURRENTLY HAVE. TAKE NOTE. Full Review

Asks for permission to make phone calls, I don't see why that would be important so I pressed "never ask again" and denied access. Then the app would immediately shut off every time I opened it, with no way to get in without having to reinstall the app. Now I can not view any folder in my phone because that's the only plug in my phone accepts. Guess I'll have to re install and allow access to make phone calls? Full Review

Ty Samsung fur your reply. Means so much to me. I'll try those suggestions on the reply, soon. I did install it, but I haven't used it yet. With reading all those Other reviews, I'm not sure if I should Tap the update, even if this is pre - installed. I Do not need more bloatware that Won't function as in many areas othrs Said in their Reviews. Leaving this as, 'Skeptical' & 4 now, I'm waiting until I get all my info to research on my "4 in 1 Dell printer" first.

Seems to clash with the HP print service plugin. Disable one or the other and nothing works at all. Enable both , the Samsung app crashes every time a print request is sent. Can't print at all now. Makes it pretty much useless. EDIT: Had to completely disable Samsung printing app for to be able to print!! Full Review

Sorry, Samsung: I've already dealt with your support people. They were very nice but ultimately determined that none of my three Samsung printers are correctly supported by this ap. They recommended that I use your other ap the Samsung Mobile Print Ap. You all really need to get your act together. How is the customer supposed to know this? Complete crap. How embarrassingly bad that a company of Samsung's size and calibre should release such poor software for their otherwise good printers. Horribly difficult to configure, and every few weeks you have to repeat the process. Have plenty of paper on hand for all your aborted print nightmares! Full Review

I don't want it, I didn't ask for it. And yet it installed itself and I was unable to download email attachments unless I agreed to use this. I now have to disable this app every week !!!!! I have a HP printer and HP print app that does everything I need. Full Review

I would give 0 - negative stars if I could. I've tried everything possible to print from screen with the print option (on any/every) printable page/document, nothing happens. It also prevents me from choosing other print options such as "hp e print". Unfortunate it's preinstalled and unable to remove without a root. Printing through an app like hp eprint should at least easier. Full Review

Samsung says that this app has 95% 5 star ratings. But if you actually go through and read ALL of the reviews, they are almost ALL 1 star and state how ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE this app really is. So I say, Samsung, STOP portraying this pre-installed app as being a terrific app when in reality, it is NOT!! And the worst part is that it can not be uninstalled to free up space for apps that are actually worth a damn. Full Review

Forced bloatware. Can't find my Canon printer. Please allow for uninstallation. It is has no use and takes up unnecessary space. I do not care if it supports multiple brands. I care if it works, and it does not, because when you don't feel the impact of customer frustration on your bottom line, why try to satisfy the customer? Full Review

UPDATE: Thank you for the update, Samsung! Went from 1 to 3 stars for now, because I have to figure out how to update my Chrome Browser (6x version for Note 5) to see if I can get it to work. I will update once I am able to print. I sincerely appreciate your feedback and keeping me updating. Excellent customer service!!! OLD:Fellow Samsung users, I believe I isolated the issue to the Samsung Print Plugin that we can't remove & can't use other print plugins without it. I use Brother plugin for print & Google Cloud Plugin for PDF saving. I first uninstalled the Brother plugin. Still got the "Failed to change settings" error when printing email. Then uninstalled Google plugin, same. Disabled Samsung plugin. Reinstalled Brother. Phone couldn't find printer. Enabled Samsung plugin. Found printer, got same error. Thanks, Samsung! Full Review
