If you have ever desired to become a member of a Google Group but do not possess a Gmail account, this article is intended for you. Surprisingly, possessing a Gmail account is not a requirement for joining a Google Group. You can utilize any email address you have, such as from Yahoo, Outlook, or any other email service provider. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to accomplish this task.
Step 1: Find the Google Group
First, you need to find the Google Group you wish to join. You can do this by simply searching for it in Google or by visiting the Google Groups website and using the search bar.
Step 2: Request to Join the Group
Once you’ve found the group, click on it and you’ll see a button that says “Apply for membership” or “Join this group.” Click on it.
Step 3: Fill Out the Application
A form will appear asking you to fill out some information. This typically includes your name and the email address you want to use for the group. This is where you can input your non-Gmail email address.
Step 4: Confirm Your Email Address
After filling out the form and submitting it, you’ll receive an email at the address you provided. This is just to confirm that the email address is yours. Click on the link in the email to confirm.
Step 5: Wait for Approval
Once you’ve confirmed your email address, all you have to do is wait for the group’s moderator to approve your request. Once approved, you’re in!
And that’s it. You’ve now joined a Google Group without a Gmail account. I hope you find this guide helpful. If you have any questions or run into any issues, feel free to leave a comment below.
