Download And Install CM 12 GApps On CyanogenMod 12

If you happen to be running CyanogenMod 12, then you might find that there aren’t some applications like G-Mail, Google Tasks, Hangouts, or even the Play Store itself. This is because the package of the ROM that you installed has no GApps or Google Apps installed in it, thus making it a light ROM to download. But the Google Play Store is a essential on an Android device. Without the Google Play Store, you wouldn’t be able to get automatic updates to your apps, and you won’t be able to download applications directly. In this guise, you are going to learn how to flash the CM 12 GApps on your CyanogenMod 12 running Android device.
