Requesting Asking my Professor to create a Google Account to write a Letter of Recommendation—did I do something wrong?Recommendation for me there

My situation is as follows:

I requested a recommendation letter to a professor and he agreed to write one for me. However, the application*application (a Google form) to which he needed to upload the letter required a Google account to sign in. He didn't have an account, so he emailed me what he should do, so I kindly told him that he needed to create one, detailing the steps he needed to take. This is when my professor emailed me back rather harshly, asking why he couldn't just submit using just his faculty email. I had to then email the program, and I was told to ask my professor to send the letter directly to the correspondent.

I understand that this is not that big of an issue, but I would like to know whether it was wrongful of me to have asked my professor to create the Google account. How can I be more careful in the future so as to prevent negative responses?

Thank you.

*By 'application' I meant a Google form.
