Whenever we sign up for an account on any website we need to go through the registration process where we give alternate email ID for verification mail and then we need to click on confirmation link to get that account activated. This becomes bit frustrating when we are in hurry to open an account.
But now if you want to sign up for Google account with your exciting Yahoo, Hotmail or other email address then you don’t have to go through the lengthy process. By using Open ID or OAuth authentications, you can now create a Google Doc, Google Reader or any other Google Account with the help of Yahoo credentials.
This Open ID is supported by Yahoo, Google and few more mail providers. Instead of going to whole registration and confirmation process, you can sign up with Google from your Yahoo credentials with a button that sends you to Yahoo for verification. Once Click on Agree button you can start using your new account. This will surely help Google to get more users who are fan of Yahoo.
Isn’t it simple and quick? I love the new feature and I would also like to know your views about this new sign up process.
