Friday, September 7th, 2018

If you are at all into the root/ROM community, then you should probably be familiar with Open GApps, which combines the Google services that most of us need for our Android phones (i.e., the Play Store, Play Services, and other Google apps) into a collection of convenient, recovery-flashable packages. In a milestone, today Open GApps has released its first builds for Android 9 Pie. ARM packages are live, with ARM64 and x86 architectures to follow in the next few hours.

Open GApps builds now available for Android 8.1 Oreo

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Custom ROMs almost never have Google apps and services built-in, partially to give users more choice, and partially to avoid any legal issues. If someone wants the Play Store and other Google apps, they have to flash an additional zip file containing those components.

The project's site now has download links for Android 8.1 Gapps packages, in all platform variants (arm, arm64, x86, and x86_64).
