    Enjoying the new-out-of-the-box Tab S2 T713 I got last week!

    Printing apps: I have a Brother WiFi printer at home.
    Brother has a print app, which wants a ton of permissions, not my choice.

    What generic printing options out there?

    I am also new to Nougat (in two days ago).
    I thought there was a provision in 7.0 to limit permissions, but I did not see anything like it yet.

    Yes but...
    I do not want to print to the cloud, just to the printer on my home network, in the next room..!!

    I use the brother printer service plugin from the Play Store. It works just fine from my S2 to my Brother Laser printer.

    Thanks badcat.
    i used the Brother plug-in it in the past (Nexus7 days), but I was trying to avoid the long list of permissions it asks for. I guess I will have to use that.

    I see what your saying but without some of those permissions it wouldn't be able to print. Network access for example, it wouldn't be able to print over WiFi without it.
