Google announced Android 9.0 Pie a couple of months ago. While we all are very well aware of how long manufacturers take to roll-out official updates for their devices, there are already Android 9.0 custom ROMs available for many devices. Unlike previous versions of Android, we started seeing Android Pie Custom ROMs for many devices, just as soon as the official version was released. Reason? Project Treble. Thanks to Google’s latest feature, Project Treble, a lot of devices have already tasted a stable version of Android Pie.

The very first step that you should take after installing custom ROM on any Android device is to install the corresponding GApps Package for it. In this article, we are bringing you the latest Android Pie GApps Package for you to download.

Android 9 GApps

What is a GApps Package?

GApps (short for Google Apps) is nothing but a bunch of Google Apps and Services which will enable Google services to work properly on your Android device. In case if you didn’t know already, almost all the custom ROMs are built on the basis of Pure AOSP (Android Open Source Project) ROM, which does not have any Google Apps or Services and is fully open-source.

So, in order to use apps like Google Play Store, G Mail, Hangouts, etc, you need to have Google Services enabled on your device. And flashing the GApps Package via a custom recovery does exactly that. It simply enables Google Services and also installs a few essential Google Apps based on the package you choose.
