Download Android (Google Apps) Oreo Gapps for LineageOS 15, Gapps for Oreo AOSP ROM, Resurrection Remix Android Oreo ROM, AICP Android Oreo ROM and many other Android Oreo based ROMs. This page contains all available Android Oreo Gapps for Lineage OS 15 and other relevant Android Oreo based ROMs. There was some proprietary issue between Google and formerly known as CyanogenMod (now LineageOS); because of what the Google Apps have to be kept outside of Lineage OS, CyanogenMod or any other custom ROM for that matter. If you are really interested on the GApps story then read on otherwise you can directly go to the list of available LineageOS 15 Oreo GApps.
Why GApps is not part of Lineage OS or CyanogenMod??
Android being an Open Source Project is free to use but the underlying Application are not. Android is owned and developed by Google and hence it delivers all the google made Applications such as: Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps and many others. Because of the Open Source nature of Android many developers started developing their version of Androids for example: CyanogenMod which has their own set of features on top of Stock Android Source code. It was back in 2009 during the development of CyanogenMod 4.1 Google sent a letter to Steve Kondik (Co-founder of CyanogenMod) to remove all the Google Applications from CyanogenMod after market Android firmware and hence after that the Google Apps are available separately. Wanna read more on this then here is link on Wikipedia on this matter.
This fact started from CyanogenMod (Now it is Lineage OS) because it was the most popular or to be true this was the only Android custom ROM available during that time and post that all other Custom ROMs too follow the same trend of keeping not only Google Apps but any proprietary applications outside the Custom ROM build. You need these GApps primarily for any Lineage OS 15 Oreo ROMs and those are built on top of CyanogenMod ROM such as: Resurrection Remix Oreo ROM, AOKP Oreo ROM and you need these Google Apps packages even on AOSP Custom ROMs like: Omni ROM, Paranoid Android Oreo ROM etc.
