In September 2013, Mopria Alliance was introduced with four leading printing manufacturers namely, Canon, Hewlett-Packard, Xerox, and Samsung. Currently, the alliance has a participation of over 21 member organizations, which represents around 97% of the printing business globally. This alliance was formed with an intention to transfer information easily and enhance consumer usability by developing global wireless printing standards.
