[Legacy] Google Cloud Print and PaperCut
⚠️ Google announced that Google Cloud Print, their cloud-based printing solution that has been in beta since 2010, is no longer supported (as of December 31, 2020)..
We recommend you take a look at PaperCut Mobility Print as a Google Cloud Print alternative instead.
If you’re currently using GCP, there is also a useful article on How to migrate from GCP to Mobility Print.
Google Cloud Print (GCP) is a solution from Google that connects printers to the web to allow users to print easily to a home or work printer via a multitude of different applications and hardware.
PaperCut tracks GCP printing by associating GCP printers with standard operating system print queues and transferring job from the GCP queue to the standard operating system queue controlled by PaperCut.

However as noted above, since Google Cloud Print will no longer be supported by Google, we highly recommend looking into alternatives:
