Universal Print service description

Universal Print, a Microsoft 365 cloud printing service, enables printers to be placed on zero-trust setup and removes the need for custom drivers on user devices. This service enables workplace-joined Windows 10/11 endpoints to select and print to Azure AD registered printers without the need to install another client software.

Users benefit from driverless printing, streamlined location-based printer discovery, and an intuitive printing experience with no learning curve that leverages the existing print flow on their device.

Universal Print is a print infrastructure cloud service that can be extended with advanced functionality by Microsoft Partner software solutions, multifunctional printing devices, and cloud services.
