Google apps

Google apps are the proprietary Google-branded applications that come pre-installed with most Android devices, such as the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, etc. Due to licensing restrictions, these apps cannot come pre-installed with LineageOS and must be installed separately. The Google apps are not required to boot or run LineageOS, however many users find them beneficial to take full advantage of the Android ecosystem.

These apps have been packaged by developers independent of LineageOS, and download links have been provided for your convenience only. It is possible to perform a “backup” of the Google apps on your device and then “restore” them, but this does take additional steps which are not covered here.

The Google apps packages are not supported in any way by LineageOS.

Installation

Google apps should be installed via recovery immediately after installing LineageOS. Exact steps vary, and as such, you should see your device’s installation guide here for specific instructions.

Note regarding Open GApps

If you use Open GApps, they offer a variety of sizes of packages that include and overwrite different apps.

Since you can install any non included apps later, we only recommend the following package sizes (or smaller):

If you use a larger package, we can not guarantee that everything will function on your device, as in many of these cases our included apps are overwritten in favor of the Google App equivalents. If your device states that there is not enough space on any specific partition during install, you will need to use an even smaller package instead.

Downloads

These packages are only dependent on your OS version and architecture, which can be found on each device specific info page in this wiki (Device overview).
