Download Android (Google Apps) Gapps for LineageOS 14.1, CyanogenMod 14/14.1, Resurrection Remix Nougat ROM, AICP Nougat ROM and many other Nougat based ROMs. This page contains all available GApps for Lineage OS 14.1 and other relevant Android Nougat based ROMs. There was some proprietary issue between Google and CyanogenMod; because of what the Google Apps have to be kept outside of Lineage OS, CyanogenMod or any other ROM for that matter. If you are really interested on the GApps story then read on.
Why GApps is not part of Lineage OS or CyanogenMod??
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 OS 14.1 Nougat 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:
This GApps for LineageOS is only for Lineage OS 14.1 which is based on Android Nougat 7.1, so you need to chose only Nougat 7.1 GApps (Google Apps). Nougat 7.0 GApps for LineageOS is NOT APPLICABLE.
DOWNLOAD LINKS TO ANDROID NOUGAT (GOOGLE APPS) GAPPS FOR Lineage OS 14.1, CM14/CYANOGENMOD 14/AOSP/RR ROM :
These are all recovery flashable zip packages, which means you can install these GApps packages using custom recoveries like TWRP, CWM, Cyanogengen or PhilZ recovery. Here is guide explaining How to flash GApps using TWRP recoveryDecember 19, 2016 at 5:17 PM #10346

Play store is the basic building block of any GApps. I believe it should be there.
