Epson Connect Solutions Finder Available to Simplify Mobile Printing Options

Underscoring its commitment to creating a better, easier and more accessible mobile printing experience, Epson America has announced its first Mopria-certified printers for home and business – the Epson® Expression® Photo XP-860, Epson® Expression® Premium XP-820, XP-620, XP-520, and Epson WorkForce® WF-2660, WF-2650 and WF-2630.
The need for mobile printing is increasing in tandem with the growing ownership of smartphones and tablets, that is expected to reach 5.1 billion worldwide by 2018. Epson’s mobile print efforts are designed to embrace both the rapidly evolving demands of mobile customers and the diversity of multiple operating systems. One key initiative is Epson’s commitment to the Mopria Alliance’s mission for intuitive mobile printing and advancing mobile print standards that allow business and home users to print regardless of brand, device or operating system.
Mopria-certified Epson all-in-one printers work with the Mopria Print Service and the built-in Printing Framework in Android v4.4 or later (KitKat). After ensuring the printer has the latest firmware, Android 4.4 users can print from Google apps such as Chrome, Gmail, Drive and QuickOffice, as well as the Adobe Reader and Kingsoft WPS Office App.  With Android projected to account for 74 percent of global smartphones and tablets sold in 20141, Epson is actively enabling intuitive printing for an unprecedented number of new Android users.
In addition to Epson’s support of the Mopria Alliance and its goal to streamline mobile printing, Epson also offers the Epson Connect Solutions Finder to help mobile users make sense of the numerous mobile printing solutions and apps currently available. Using this online tool, users can easily choose a mobile device and compare which printing options are best-suited to meet their specific mobile printing needs.
