If you are a user of the Google Chrome browser, you are now able to print your documents in Google Docs directly from your browser, without first converting the documents to PDF format. The new feature called Native Printing was launched on Tuesday evening in a new update, which also includes support for pagination.
“We’ve worked closely with the Chrome team to implement a recent web standard so we can support a feature called native printing. (…) With native printing, you can print directly from your browser and the printed document will always exactly match what you see on your screen,” explains Google.
So far, this only works from Chrome, but Google hopes that other browsers will support the function soon.
