Default Server 2012 Android printing

Hi everyone just swapped my tower OS from 7 to Windows Server 2012r2 it's in a workgroup environment,

I have been trying to share my usb printer through the network so far so good I have got all my windows computers setup and they can print to the printer fine.

how can I get my android devices to wireless print to the same printer I used to use a app called printer share and that worked fine on windows 7 but just keeps looping asking for credentials

Use the android software produced by the company that made the printer.

1st choice would be an app from the printer mfr as Technician said but, if not available, you could always setup Google Cloud Print to be able to print from your Android devices https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/
