What Does Android 9.0 Pie Gapps Do?
Basically, it gives you Google Play Store so you can install other apps. Since Google itself does not allow inclusion of Google Gapps through custom ROM zip files, you will have to flash them separately. If you do not use Gapps, you won’t be able to access the Google Play Store since you will have no access to the Google Store. Also, with Gapps, you will be able to get the normal welcome login, so you can go through the login process. There may be cases where you don’t need Google Play Store such as if you do not use the Google Play Store for installing apps.(You can also install all apps through APK files if you don’t want to use Google Play Store.) But we do recommend using Google Play Store for installing official apps because it is much easier and also safer.
There are other bigger Gapps files you can use but you don’t need them as they waste space and you can always install all apps after installing Google Play Store.
