We have had a look into the GApps packages and enlisted their details below. You can now move towards them and Download Google GApps for Android 7.x Nougat [All Custom ROMs]. By all ROMs, we mean all custom ROMs like CyanogenMod 14, Paranoid Android, Resurrection Remix, Slim ROM, OmniROM, AOSP ROM and other such ROMs.
Google introduced the Android 7.0 Nougat officially on August 22, 2016. With the Android Nougat officially out, custom ROM developers are back to work once again and working on several custom ROMs which will bring Android 7.0 to a lot of devices unofficially. CyanogenMod, which is one of the best custom ROMs and is also available for most of the Android smartphones, has now moved to its next iteration. The new CyanogenMod 14 is out now which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. CyanogenMod 14 has already made its way to the Android One devices and also the OnePlus One. Now that the development has been kickstarted, not only CM 14 will find its way to other phones, but other custom ROMs will come up as well.
Flashing custom ROMs is your way towards customisation of your Android phone. A custom ROM most of the times comes empty and that is what it makes it extremely light. Custom ROMs do no have any applications or bloatware pre-installed and the developers give this choice to the user. To perform basic operations on your device running a custom Android OS, you need Google GApps on it first of all. These GApps include applications like Google Play Store, Google Play Services, Google Play Music, Google Calendar, Google Play Books, Google Hangouts etc. The very first thing that you do right after flashing a custom ROM is to find an appropriate GApps.zip package and then flash it. For CyanogenMod 14 and other custom ROMs based on Android Nougat, you will need to find the compatible GApps package.
Thankfully, the team OpenGapps, which is popular for its work on Google GApps for almost all versions of Android, has now pulled out the GApps packages for Android Nougat. The GApps provided by OpenGapps are compatible with all custom ROMs based on Android Nougat. Several packages of the GApps are available and you have to pick up the one according to your convenience.
