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

If you choose to install Google apps they must 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.

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).
