    Google account and Gmail account is the same thing.
    Google account will always be ***@Gmail.com
    With that account you can access all Google products, YouTube, Google drive, photos, etc. And GMAIL
    So yes you do need a Google account to use the play store. To make an account go to Gmail.com (or any other Google product) and create account

    First of all, you need a gmail account. It's the same as a Google account.
