    I guess you have to log in/ create an account for Google Services. Is a Gmail account required for this, or can I use another account?

    I had (have?) a Goggle account through my yahoo email address, used it to deal with my LG Optimus Pro phone. I set it up probably 20 years ago and dont know if the rules have changed regarding having to use a Goggle email.

    So you were about to use the play store with a google account that didn't have a gmail account?

    I have this same question. I have a google account but do not use a gmail account with it. The play store is the main concern as it used to require gmail but I just checked and it no longer says gmail it just says google account.

    I'm pretty sure you just need a Google Account.

    You need a google account... not a gmail adress

    I used a google account that is not linked to a gmail email when I had the priv, and it worked perfectly

    How exactly did you create a Google account that's not linked to a Gmail address?

    Just went to Google and started the process. They'll prompt you to use an existing gmail or create a new one (smart). Below it you'll find the option to use a different email.

    Conclusion: gmail is not a requirement for creating a Google account.

    @mods: can the thread be closed?
