Galaxy Tab A - How do I print images or documents directly from my Samsung Galaxy Tab A?

Last Update date : 2018.02.22

Printing


Print images and documents to Samsung printers and other compatible printers (not included). The print function, available as a menu option within some applications, lets you print directly from your device to a printer on the same Wi-Fi network.

Very important: Your tablet can only print documents on a Wi-Fi printer (wireless). If you need a cable to print a document from your computer, it means that your printer is not a Wi-Fi printer. Therefore, it will not be possible to print documents from your tablet using such a printer. No cable will allow you to connect your tablet to a printer.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
