Now that Google has officially released all Android 7.0 Nougat firmware images for all supported Nexus devices, everyone is rushing in to create the latest Gapps packages for other devices. Google officially released the firmware images of 7.0 Nougat for a good number of phones, including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, as well as Pixel C.
There are many devices from other companies which do not have the opportunity of enjoying the 7.0 Nougat update. This happens because many OEMs are slow on building Android 7.0 updates for their devices, and some companies don’t even try to update their devices to a new version at all.
Custom AOSP builds are ROMs based on Android 7.0 Nougat such as CyanogenMod 14/CM14 that deliver the latest Android experience to devices that can’t enjoy any official builds due to reasons mentioned above. AOSP ROMs are based on the latest 7.0 Nougat source code, so they deliver the same Android experience as on official builds.
One thing however is that these ROMs do not have Google Apps, also known as Gapps. Gapps is a package which contains many Google Apps, hence the name. These ROMs do not have any Google Apps pre-installed, so you have to manually install them. Fortunately, the good thing is that installing Gapps is as easy as installing a custom ROM.
Thanks to OpenGapps, you can enjoy all the benefits of a Nougat ROM. OpenGapps has released the required Gapps for Android 7.0 Nougat. There are various 7.0 Nougat packages that you can choose from: Super, Stock, Full, Mini, Micro, Nano, Pico. Each package has a different number of Google Apps. Pico only installs Google Play Services, while the Super Package contains all the apps that you will ever need.
