Google app or Gapps is containing all the applications that are officially developed, maintained and released by Google. The apps like Gmail, Google Play Store, Calender, Google+ and so on are the apps we use daily on our Android based device. Without them our Android doesn't look like one.
And currently the custom ROM such as CM or CyanogenMod doesn't include the Gapps, therefore during our effort to flash the custom ROM, we are required to also flash the Gapps separately. And that's the requirement we can avoid. On this post I share to you the download links of Gapps for CM14 and CM14.1 custom ROM. Those who are searching these kind of applications can come to this page now.
CM14 and newer are based on the Android 7 Nougat, therefore all the apps from Google must be supporting the Nougat. Therefore you need to update your existing apps to the latest ones. And do not worry you can get them all here.
Alright before begin, I would like you to read the additional information, please.
