Epson Drives Intuitive Mobile Printing Experience for Home and Business Users with Mopria-Certified All-in-One Printers

Epson Connect Solutions Finder Available to Simplify Mobile Printing Options

Underscoring its commitment to creating a better, easier and more accessible mobile printing experience, Epson America today announced its first Mopria-certified printers for home and business – the Epson® Expression® Photo XP-860, Epson® Expression® Premium XP-820, XP-620, XP-520, and Epson WorkForce® WF-2660, WF-2650 and WF-2630.

The need for mobile printing is increasing in tandem with the growing ownership of smartphones and tablets, that is expected to reach 5.1 billion worldwide by 20181. Epson's mobile print efforts are designed to embrace both the rapidly evolving demands of mobile customers and the diversity of multiple operating systems. One key initiative is Epson's commitment to the Mopria Alliance's mission for intuitive mobile printing and advancing mobile print standards that allow business and home users to print regardless of brand, device or operating system.

Mopria-certified Epson all-in-one printers work with the Mopria Print Service and the built-in Printing Framework in Android v4.4 or later (KitKat). After ensuring the printer has the latest firmware, Android 4.4 users can print from Google apps such as Chrome, Gmail, Drive and QuickOffice, as well as the Adobe Reader and Kingsoft WPS Office App. With Android projected to account for 74 percent of global smartphones and tablets sold in 20141, Epson is actively enabling intuitive printing for an unprecedented number of new Android users.

"With 9 out of 10 U.S. smartphone users 16 years or older2 and two of five employees using smartphones on the job3, the need for intuitive mobile printing options and support is apparent," said Patrick Chen, product manager of mobile connectivity, Epson America, Inc. "Epson is proud to actively support an industry-wide movement to streamline mobile printing ease-of-use and accessibility."

In addition to Epson's support of the Mopria Alliance and its goal to streamline mobile printing, Epson also offers the Epson Connect Solutions Finder to help mobile users make sense of the numerous mobile printing solutions and apps currently available. Using this online tool, users can easily choose a mobile device and compare which printing options are best-suited to meet their specific mobile printing needs.
