Here in this page, you can download essential Google Apps package including Play Store, Play Services, Account Manager, and Google Services Framework. The package is for ROM based on Android 8.0 / 8.1 Oreo (the MIUI 9 for example). The package has been tested to work perfectly on Mi 6 running MIUI 9 China Stable build.
As you may also have noticed that some of the Android devices do not come with Google Play pre-installed. Especially those released in China. Let’s take Xiaomi phones for example. Several variants of the phone are released in two editions: the International edition with MIUI Global build and the China edition with MIUI China build. However, the MIUI China build doesn’t have Google Play and any other Google apps installed due to some reasons. Moreover, several custom Android ROMs also don’t have Play Store installed and hence third-party installation is needed.
There are some Gapps packages like Opengapps.org that offers a full package of Google Apps from the most fundamental ones (such as Play Store app) to the most not so fundamental (such as Google Duo). However, the only drawback of such package is the need of using custom recovery like TWRP.
Previously, we have shared the install-able APK files of Gapps containing the most basic apps to setup Google Account and Play Store on a device running Nougat-based Android ROM. This time, it is the similar one but this one is for devices running Oreo-based ROM.
The file is stored and mirrored in our US and Europe servers (generated randomly) available as a direct download link. Use software like IDM, DAP, or Flashget to take advantage of resume-able connection.
Inside the package:
- Google Account Manager (apk)
- Google Contacts Sync (apk)
- Google Play Games (apk)
- Google Play Services (apk)
- Google Play Store (apk)
- Google Services Framework for Android 8.0 API26 (apk)
- Google Services Framework for Android 8.1 API27 (apk)
How to use? Install each apk file one by one as above sequence. Never run any of them until you have installed them all. You have also to choose either Google Service Framework for Android 8.0 (No.6) or the one for Android 8.1 (No.7). Don’t install both No.6 and No.7. Simply choose one of them depending on which version your phone has.
This full Gapps installer is for MIUI 8 Android 7.0 but it may also be installed on most of the devices running any Android Oreo ROM. Feel free to leave feedback.
