For those who sit on the Android side of the smartphone fence, and who like nothing more than to go through the process of rooting their Android device, there is a wealth of opportunity and fun to be had with configurations and installations.
It may not be the most fun you can have with a rooted and liberated Android smartphone or tablet but you can now grab the GApps 8.1 ARM64 APK packages for a range of popular devices as Android 8.1 Oreo surfaces on more and more devices.
Quite simply put, if you take the opportunity to root your Android device or install an Android-based custom ROM to it, then you could find yourself in a position where you are going to want to restore the array of Google apps to the hardware to give you back that vanilla Android experience.
If your custom ROM of choice opts not to include Google’s suite of available apps, or if you just root your hardware and those apps become redundant, then it stands to reason that you are going to want to go through the process of getting those apps reinstalled as they play a pivotal part of the Android experience.
This installation includes all of the available apps that you need to make Android great and highly pleasurable experience that it is. And what’s more, these particular GApps APK files are available from latest Android Oreo 8.1 for custom ROMs which means you get the latest GApps installed from the very cutting-edge of the Android experience.
After all, what good is a rooted Android device to you if it doesn’t have the basic functionality such as making telephone calls and sending messages, all of which is done through Google’s apps.
If you are ready to grab the packages, then you can head on over here right now and grab the relevant ARM64 download. These download links are put in place after each package is built every evening from source, and will actually be removed when the official builds from the Open GApps project arrive for Oreo 8.1. Additionally, you can choose the type of package you wish to install, including all Google Apps ever, apps that are shipped stock on most Nexus and Pixel devices, a bare minimum number of GApps, etc.
With that in mind, make sure you grab them while they’re hot, so to speak and make sure that your rooted device is running the latest GApps for the best possible experience.
