Epson printers are very reliable and multi-functional. The new Epson devices offer wireless printing features. Users can easily connect the printer to their systems without using the cable. If your PC or phone has a Wi-Fi feature, then you can connect the printer wirelessly. Both Android and iOS support the mobile printing service. The user doesn’t require any third-party device for taking printouts with the phone. You can directly take the printouts of a photo, document, etc. from the phone.
Today most of the phones have inbuilt printing software, which helps in connecting the printer to the PC. But if your phone doesn’t have that application, you can easily download the Google Cloud print application for help. You can connect the Epson printer to the Smartphone and then take the printouts from Google drive, DropBox, etc.

Press the Wi-Fi button of your Epson printer, and the printer will start searching for the connection. You will see the Wi-Fi lamp; it will blink until it finds the connection. Check the available devices on your Smartphone. From the available devices, tap on the Epson printer. The Wi-Fi lamp will become steady, and the printer gets connected to your Smartphone. Now open the document or image you want to print and choose the print command. Check the pages on the input tray of the Epson printer. Your Epson printer will start printing your document.
