US based search engine giant Google has announced that Cloud Print, its cloud-based printing solution, will be retired at the end of next year.

“Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will no longer be able to print using Google Cloud Print. We recommend that over the next year, you identify an alternative solution and execute a migration strategy,” a support document for Cloud Print said on Thursday.

Devices across all operating systems, including Android and Chrome OS, will no longer be able to use Cloud Print.

Since Google has improved Chrome OS’s ability to natively print documents from the browser to a network printer, so there is no need for a Cloud solution in between, forbes.com reported.

The world’s largest online multilingual encyclopedia, Wikipedia, has now crossed the milestone of having more than six million articles in English language.

The feat, which comes roughly 19 years after the website was founded, is a testament of “what humans can do together,” said Ryan Merkley, chief of staff at Wikimedia, the nonprofit organisation that operates the omnipresent online encyclopedia, TechCrunch reported on Friday.

The six millionth article is about Maria Elise Turner Lauder, a 19th-century Canadian school teacher, travel writer and fiction writer.
