Google Cloud Print will be the method that is most likely to work for you. If your brother has set his printer up as a google cloud printer, you're all set. If he has not, here's how he can do it. https://support.google.com/cloudprint/answer/1686197?hl=en.

It doesn't appear that this printer model supports Wifi direct, but you can definitely use Google Cloud Print.

Hi Alison. Thank you so much for your response to my question. I have investigated the information provided but it would seem my printer is not compatible. Not sure where to from here, any suggestions. I was hoping I wouldn't have to upgrade my printer to a newer model.

I'm sorry to hear that. Please give me just a moment to look into alternatives. Please forgive my silliness earlier. I know that the brand is BROTHER, but I misread it and thought that it was your brother's Brother printer lol!

Expert:  GeekGal replied 1 month ago.

The basic premise of Google Cloud Print is that you can print to anywhere to ANY printer once you have set that printer up with Google CloudPrint. Your Brother MFC-685CW is not "Cloud Ready" but you can set it up as a Cloud Printer by clicking this link and selecting ADD YOUR CLASSIC PRINTER. Please give this a try and let me know if it works for you.
