Can I make/use a @outlook.com email as a Google Account?

Recommended Posts

I have (for example) bob@outlook.com I tried to register bob@gmail.com but it says it is taken. Can I make a Google Account out of bob@outlook.com? How? Or am I doing something impossible?

Note: I am saying a Google Account, NOT a gmail account.

A Google Account requires a Gmail address. Well, requires a Gmail address is not entirely true. Google requires you to create a Gmail address in order to get a Google Account of any type.

That sucks. Im sure my gmail account isnt taken but Google has for some reason reserved it.

if you have an email address associated with your google account that's not a gmail address and you have it on your phone you will get "google talk authentication failed" notifications on your phone and it will annoy you.

You don't need a Gmail address, I am using my Inbox.com email address for my Google account, but Google keeps trying push Gmail down your throat, once you have a Google account getting a Gmail only takes a couple of clicks, make sure to refuse it.
