Create new Google account using non-Gmail ID


When you select username while creating a new Google account, a Gmail email account with same username is automatically created during sign-up process. If you do not intend to use Gmail email account and is only creating new Google account to access other Google services, then creating Google account without Gmail account sign-up is a better option. With this, you can use your existing email account while creating new Google account.

Google account without Gmail: Is it good

Personally, I would recommend sign-up of Google account along with new Gmail account. While now you may only need Google account for accessing Google services, an associated Gmail account can be handy anytime in future. Also you can forward emails from this new Gmail account to your existing non-Gmail account for easy and hassleĀ  free management. However, Google does provide option for with or without Gmail ID sign-up, take your pick.
