Customer Satisfaction Print from Mobile

Printing From A Mobile Device

At Canon, we believe printing should be a convenience, not a chore. With our PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS) app*, you can easily print and scan photos or documents wirelessly** right from your compatible mobile digital device (document printing from compatible Android devices available November 2013 or later). PPS also offers a variety of other features, including an online manual and the ability to view printer settings - all without turning on a computer.
Making it Work

First, make sure that the Canon PIXMA Printer you are using is compatible with PIXMA Printing Solutions*** and is properly installed on your wireless network. The PIXMA Printing Solutions app is free to download at the App Store and at Google Play. You can also download it directly from Canon by clicking here.

Photo Printing from Apple and Android mobile digital devices:
