Can non-Gmail users be member of Google Groups?

If yes, can they be added to Google Groups directly and begin receiving Group posts?

    Yes: non Gmail users can use Google Groups. But regardless of what email service they use, people will need to opt-in to join a Google Group. You cannot simply add people without their consent – you can invite them.

      You asked if users can be added "directly", and I interpreted that as being without verification. Sorry if that was incorrect.

    you can add members who have a non-gmail address, their contributions cannot be readily integrated into the group.

      Pl note : Do the links mention whether the users can be added without their having to subscribe on own? ( as in fb groups where frns can be added to groups without frns having to subscribe )
