Let’s face it, the way of the world is mobile devices and bring your own device (BYOD) to work and school. This means that sometimes you need to print from your mobile device. Mopria – Mobile Printing Alliance was formed to create standards and interoperability for devices and printers. Xerox was one of the founding members.
The Mopria™ Print Service is for Android devices using Kit-Kat 4.4 or greater. Mopria Print Services provides a standard way to connect to a Xerox ConnectKey 1.5 Technology-enabled printer/MFP and send a print job across different mobile devices. The Xerox products that have Mopria certification are the following Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology enabled MFPs:
• ColorQube™ 8700
• ColorQube™ 8900
• ColorQube™ 9301/9302/9303
• WorkCentre™ 5845/5855
• WorkCentre™ 5865/5875/5890
• WorkCentre™ 5945/5955
• WorkCentre™ 7220/7225
• WorkCentre™ 7830/7835/7845/7855
To make sure your product is updated and ready please visit the Mopria Support page for information on installing, enabling and configuring your Xerox device(s). Once set up you can print from a Mopria-enabled mobile device from the email, gallery, and web browser applications. In the future, other apps may be available that offer printing capabilities.
I have included a video from Mopria that overviews the goals of the Mopria Alliance.
