Gmail accounts can now be accessed from within Yahoo Mail accounts. As part of the Yahoo! Mail update, third-party email services, including Microsoft’s Outlook, can now be accessed. There was, however, no Gmail at that time, which is one of Google’s most popular services. According to Statista (an online portal that provides statistics and survey results), Google’s email service has 900 million users as of May.

How to access it
Go to settings on the right side of Yahoo Mail’s desktop version to access Gmail. You can choose Google from the four options available if you open accounts, click on add another account, and click on add another account. In addition to Outlook, Hotmail, and AOL, there are three other options. Sign in with your Gmail password after selecting Google and adding your email address. On the left side panel of the screen, you can see your Gmail account after being redirected to Yahoo Mail. You will be able to see your Gmail inbox immediately after logging into your Yahoo account.
