Download GApps for Custom ROM
by Rushikesh P. Traveller
Gapps are Gmail, Google+, Google Drive, Google Playstore, Google Music, Google Docs, Goole Earth, Google Search, and Youtube, etc. By the way, all these apps are pre-installed on every mobile so you don’t have to download them from anywhere. But if you will install any custom ROM then these Gapps will not available.
Google Apps or GApps are primarily used to flash Google services on custom ROMs. Usually, most of the custom ROMs come without any support for Google services. It is also an advantage of third-party ROMs that they don’t carry any inbuilt support for any assistance.
Google always posts the AOSP source code for Android Update. The same AOSP code is being used by the major OEMs to develop their custom ROMs based on different Android versions. They often add or remove the Android’s base functionalities to make it compatible with the smart devices, including Smart Watch, Smart TVs, Smart Box, and smartphone, etc.
On the other hand, third-party custom ROM developers like Pixel Experience, LineageOS, Nitrogen OS make the AOSP source code available with extensive features. Now, it depends upon the developers to either include Google Apps or not. Then the role of flashable GApps comes into play.
