Default [Q] Cloud Print Services (SOLVED)

Hi

Anyone got any ideas as to why the Cloud Print (and HP Print services) do not seem to be installed under the Print option...? I thought that these were part of what KitKat offered, unless removed by LG...?

Having got a Canon cloud capable printer I would expected to have been able to add it easily, like I can with my Nexus tablet.

Thanks


EDIT: Solution....

Found the Cloud Print Service plugin....

The HP one (not needed by me)...

HP Print Service Plugin didn't work on my G Pad and also conflicted Google's Cloud Print, after removing HP plugin Cloud Print started working. Printing section on my G Pad was empty as well after upgrade, expected to see the Cloud Print there as default.

I agree. Considering how much LG have pushed their front end to enhance the Android experience I am not sure if the new user to that OS would have been aware of how to find a print service and install it, over that of it just being there.
Unless I missed it there is no mention of how to do this in the manual either.
Installing the Cloud printer plugin worked fine for me and now my Canon printer works a treat with the tablet.
