Question: icloud's 2 part verification with non apple product

In setting up ICLOUD on my mac computer, the instructions indicate a 2 part verification with an iphone, ipad, etc. However, I have a Samsung galaxy 5.0 phone only. May I set up the verification with that instead? If so, how?

Two-factor authentication for Apple ID - https://support.apple.com/HT204915

Trusted phone numbers

A trusted phone number is a number that can be used to receive verification codes by text message or automated phone call. You must verify at least one trusted phone number to enroll in two-factor authentication.

You should also consider verifying other phone numbers you can access, such as a home phone, or a number used by a family member or close friend. You can use these numbers if you temporarily can't access your own devices.
