Microsoft has announced a new Microsoft 365 feature – Universal Print. This allows your printers to be added to Microsoft 365 cloud, removing the need for on-premise print servers. As this is a new service, it’s going to be missing some key features that on-premise servers would have vs. this model.
Universal Print moves key Windows Server print functionality to the Microsoft 365 cloud, so organizations no longer need on-premises print servers and do not need to install printer drivers on devices. In addition, Universal Print adds key functionality like security groups for printer access, location-based printer discovery, and a rich administrator experience.
