Update: GApps for ARM and ARM64 devices running Android 8.1 Oreo now available for download. Gapps are very important when it comes to flashing or testing custom ROMS like Lineage OS 15, Resurrection Remix, Paranoid Android, etc. The custom ROMS are independent of the Google Apps and services. Hence, it is optional for Android users to use Gapps or not. We have seen many custom ROMS like AOSP ports and LineageOS based on Android 8.0. Following the release of official Android 8.1 Oreo by Google, we are seeing various custom AOSP 8.1 builds for various devices. Hence, the latest Gapps (Google Apps packages) for Android 8.1 Oreo will come in handy while flashing custom ROMS.
The latest 8.1 Oreo ROM comes with enhanced features and upgrades for the Android system. The very first build is based on December 2017 Security Patch. It also features a new SDK version. Apart from that, you will see various improvements to the Password autofill, Picture-in-Picture, and much more.
