  Description     : CUPS Cloud Print is a Google Cloud Print driver for UNIX-like operating systems. It allows any application which prints via CUPS to print to Google Cloud Print directly.

Assuming you have Print-Cloud-Ready printer, Google Cloud Print allows you to
print to your printer without installing any printer specific drivers – aside
from the obvious advantages of not having to install drivers for every printer
you come into contact with, it allows you to use a proprietary printer on
platforms you would not normally easily be able to use ( for example, printing
from an ARM-based Raspberry Pi to a printer where the manufacturer only provides
x86 proprietary drivers ). 

Also, because Google Docs ( Google Drive ) presents itself as a printer to Cloud
Print, it also means you can ‘print’ directly to Google Docs using CUPS Cloud
Print ( some users have leveraged this functionality to scan to Google Docs ).
