Do I Need An App To Print Emails?

No, it is not necessary to install an app to get printing done; users can use the Gmail app to get it done. Users can open the sedated email, tap on three dots from the top right, then tap on the print button/option. At last, choose the pages to print, then hit the print button.

I must show you some alternate ways, so here we go now.

Below I have mentioned some applications to try on Android that would help further print your emails.

2. Way to Do it With An Additional App

I will use Mopria Print Service, a valuable app for printing emails. However, there are a few alternatives.

For the tutorial, I will use the Mopria Print service apk.

  1. Install a printing app from the Google Play Store, such as Google Cloud Print, PrinterShare, or Mopria Print Service.
  2. Open the Email app or Gmail app on your Android device.
  3. Select or open the email you wish to print.
  4. Tap on the three dots (menu icon) at the top-right corner of the screen.
  5. From the options menu, choose the “Print” option.
  6. A pop-up menu will appear, allowing you to select the printing app you installed in Step 1.
  7. Select the desired printing app from the list.
  8. Configure any necessary print settings, such as printer selection, page range, color options, etc.
  9. Tap on the “Print” button to start printing the email.

Note: The steps may vary depending on the printing app you install and use.

It’s worth noting that the availability of the “Print” option may depend on the specific email app you are using. However, most popular email apps, including Gmail, should have built-in print functionality or support for third-party printing apps.

Remember to ensure that your Android device is connected to a compatible printer through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or another connection method before attempting to print.


  1. Open Gmail or any email app.
  2. Select the Email to print.
  3. Tap three dots, then tap print.
  4. In the pop-up menu, select Mopria or any other printing app.
  5. Now, select the required info, and hit print.

This can be the easiest way to get it printed.

If you’re using any other printing service app, you must select that app when you tap the print button from the email-receiving app.

3. Print Emails On Any device using Screenshots

To print emails on Android using the screenshot method, follow these steps:

  1. Open the email you want to print on your Android device.
  2. Take a screenshot of the email by pressing the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously or using the screenshot gesture specific to your device (e.g., swiping three fingers across the screen).
  3. Once the screenshot is captured, go to your Gallery or Photos app.
  4. Locate and open the screenshot you just took.
  5. Tap on the Share icon or the three dots menu icon.
  6. From the options that appear, select the “Print” option. If you don’t see the print option, you may need to tap on “More” or the three dots to access additional sharing options.
  7. Select your printer from the list of available printers.
  8. Adjust any necessary print settings, such as the number of copies, paper size, orientation, etc.
  9. Tap on the “Print” button to start printing the screenshot of the email.

Note: This method allows you to print a visual representation of the email as a screenshot. It may not provide the same detail or functionality as printing directly from the email app. Additionally, the quality of the printout may vary depending on the resolution and clarity of the screenshot taken.

Remember to ensure that your Android device is connected to a compatible printer through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or another connection method before attempting to print.

Can I Print Emails From My Android Phone?

Yes, the easiest method to do this is by using the Gmail app. Gmail gives the ability to print emails.

But here’s the catch: What if you cannot print email from your Android?

That’s the worst case when you are in a hurry or late.

Why Can’t I Print Emails From My Phone?

If you cannot print emails from your Android device, there’s something wrong with the app or the printer, so you cannot get the job done.

To fix this, check the printer first, then second, check the app you are using to print.

For instance, If using the Gmail app, try to clear the Gmail app’s cache or try updating the app with the latest available version.

Email apps always provide printing options; users can print a single conversation in email and all conversions in one email.

Most Android users are using Gmail. According to a report, Gmail has 1.8 billion active users worldwide. That’s why I’m more focused on Android. If you’re facing any google related issues, we have solutions for them.

Moreover, Gmail users have many millennials who use it daily. Millennials are people who are born between 1981 to 1996.

According to stats from Findstack, Gmail is the third most crucial app.

But When I ran the survey amongst them, results found that Gmail is their second most used app. I ran this survey using the story’s Instagram ads and polls feature.

Now let’s see how to print emails with attachments on Android using Gmail or any other application.

Print Email Attachments too

Steps are different when printing emails with attachments such as pdf, invoices, word files, or other files.

So, to do it, follow the below-given steps.

  1. Open the email.
  2. Tap on the attachment file.
  3. Select three dots, then select print.

Android can’t print the email with attachments; it prints one thing at a time. Firstly, print the email, select the attached file, and print it.

However, some premium versions of applications available on the Google Play Store can perform this type of print. So, below, I’m listing those apps that are premium.

List of Premium Printing Apps

  1. PrinterShare Mobile Print.
  2. Email – Fast & Secure Mail.
