What is Universal Print

Universal Print is a modern print solution that organizations can use to manage their print infrastructure through cloud services from Microsoft.

Universal Print runs entirely on Microsoft Azure. When it's deployed with Universal Print–compatible printers, it doesn't require any on-premises infrastructure.

Universal Print is a Microsoft 365 subscription-based service that organizations use to centralize print management through the Universal Print portal. It's fully integrated with Azure Active Directory and supports single sign-on scenarios.

Universal Print can be deployed with non-compatible printers by using Universal Print connector software.
