Setting up the Canon Printer App on your Android device and connecting it to your printer is a straightforward process. Follow these steps to ensure a successful setup:

  1. Prepare Your Devices

    Make sure your Canon printer is turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Android device.
    Ensure your Android device is connected to a Wi-Fi network as well.

  2. Download the Canon PRINT App

    Open the Google Play Store on your Android device.
    In the search bar, type “Canon PRINT” and press Enter.
    Locate the official “Canon PRINT” app developed by Canon Inc. Tap on it to open the app page.
    Tap the “Install” button to begin downloading and installing the app.

  3. Launch the Canon PRINT App

    Once the installation is complete, locate the Canon PRINT app on your device’s home screen or in the app drawer, and tap to open it.

  4. Set Up the App

    Upon launching the app, it may request permissions to access your device’s location and photos. Granting these permissions is necessary for functions like locating printers and printing photos. Tap “Allow” to proceed.

  5. Connect Your Printer

    On the app’s main screen, tap the “+” icon or “Add Printer” button to start the setup process.
    The app will search for available Canon printers on the same Wi-Fi network. When your printer’s model is listed, tap on it to select.

  6. Complete the Connection

    Follow the on-screen instructions to establish the connection between your Android device and the printer.
    You might be prompted to enter the Wi-Fi network password if the printer hasn’t been connected to this network before.

  7. Test and Print

    After successfully connecting the printer, you’ll receive a confirmation message.
    Test the connection by printing a test page directly from the app. You can also print documents and photos from your device’s storage or cloud services.

Congratulations! Your Canon printer is now linked to your Android device through the Canon PRINT app. You can conveniently print documents, images, and more directly from your Android device. Should you encounter any issues during setup, refer to the Canon PRINT app’s help section or contact Canon’s customer support for assistance.
