Download Android Gapps (Google Apps) for LineageOS 14.1, CyanogenMod 14/14.1, Resurrection Remix Nougat ROM, AICP Nougat ROM and many other Nougat based ROMs. Android being an Open Source Project is free to use but the underlying Application are not. Android is owned and developed by Google and hence it delivers all the google made Applications such as: Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps and many others. Because of the Open Source nature of Android many developers started developing their version of Androids for example: CyanogenMod which has their own set of features on top of Stock Android Source code. It was back in 2009 during the development of CyanogenMod 4.1 Google sent a letter to Steve Kondik (Co-founder of CyanogenMod) to remove all the Google Applications from CyanogenMod after market Android firmware and hence after that the Google Apps are available separately. Wanna read more on this then here is link on Wikipedia on this matter.
This fact started from CyanogenMod (Now it is Lineage OS) because it was the most popular or to be true this was the only Android custom ROM available during that time and post that all other Custom ROMs too follow the same trend of keeping not only Google Apps but any proprietary applications outside the Custom ROM build. You need these GApps primarily for any Lineage 14.1 ROMs, UNOFFICIAL CM14/CyanogenMod 14 Nougat 7.0 ROM, OFFICIAL CM14.1 ROM, Resurrection Remix Nougat ROMs and all other ROMs those are built on top of CyanogenMod ROM such as: Resurrection Remix Nougat ROM, AOKP Nougat ROM and you need these Google Apps packages even on AOSP Custom ROMs like: Omni ROM, Paranoid Android Nougat ROM etc.
NOTE FOR LINEAGE OS USERS:
Lineage OS comes only in Lineage 14.1 which is based on Android Nougat 7.1, so you need to chose only Nougat 7.1 GApps (Google Apps).
