Android 10 was released publicly in September 2019, and most of the brands have pushed the updates to their respective devices. While many other devices that have got a custom ROM port based on Android 10 require Gapps 10 as well to run the core Google applications such as the Google play service, framework, play store, etc.
Android 10 GApps requires a patched ROM for proper WebView support which still hasn’t been released by OpenGapps yet. The development has started, and the beta version is published by the team that you can find in this article. However, the source code being released for the public by Android is still figuring out a way. The Android 10 Gapps will work on most of the latest Android custom ROMs based on Android 10, while we have tried it on Resurrection Remix, Crdroid, LineageOS, etc.
What is GApps?
In general, GApps is the full form of Google Applications that are the proprietary Google-branded applications that come pre-installed in most of the Android smartphones, tablets, TV’s, etc. Applications such as Google play services, Contacts, Dialers, Google Maps, etc. are included in the GApps. However, there are certain restrictions over licensing from Google like the brand Huawei which is barred from using its service.
Also, there are custom ROM’s such as LineageOS, HavocOS, Resurrection Remix, OMNI-ROM, etc. do not have GApps pre-installed and must be installed separately. The Google apps are not mandatory to be installed along with a custom ROM, but many users find it to be useful to take full advantage of the Android ecosystem.
