Could I use a Yahoo email account on the Motorola Moto G?

Could I use a Yahoo email account on the Motorola Moto G, or do you have to use Gmail on Android phones?

On Android phones you need a Gmail account to use certain Google services. But: the email app can handle multiple accounts. Yahoo? No problem. So, sign in with some Gmail account to keep Google happy. Set refresh to manual, so that the G account doesn't use unnecessary resources and data. Set up your Yahoo account in the email app. And use that as your default account. It's what I do... well, actually: I use the Yahoo mail app for Android. More better features imho...
