Just like 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.

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.
