Redditor SubredditReddit found that these Google apps are pre-installed on Remix OS:

Google Play Store - com.android.vending
Google Contacts Sync - com.google.android.syncadapters.contacts
Google Play services - com.google.android.gms
Google Services Framework - com.google.android.gsf
Google Partner Setup - com.google.android.partnersetup
Market Feedback Agent - com.google.android.feedback
Google Calendar Sync - com.google.android.syncadapters.calendar
Google Account Manager - com.google.android.gsf.login
Google Backup Transport - com.google.android.backuptransport

You can enable these, so you don't have to use something like GMSInstaller/GMSActivator, which could potentially be unsafe. If you did use one of these but want to use the stock apps instead, you will have to reinstall Remix OS.

This went unnoticed because there is an app called "JideAppPolicy" that disables them at startup. Apparently, this is the only thing it does. Also, apps disabled in a specific way do not appear in Settings.

Steps:

Enter the root terminal (Alt+F1) and run this:
Code:
pm disable com.jide.apppolicy
This will disable JideAppPolicy. Then, run this:
Code:
pm list packages -d
This will list all disabled applications. To enable the Google apps, use this command:
Code:
pm enable <package name>
(Use the package names from the second command.)

To return to the GUI, use Alt+F7.

If the Play Store doesn't work immediately, check your date/time settings, and force stop + clear data for:

Google Play Store
Google Play services
Google Services Framework

Then restart Remix OS. You should be able to download apps.

To stop automatic updates, turn them off in Settings > Update > Options. Or, if you want to be extra cautious, run this command:
Code:
pm disable com.jide.autoupdater

Clear the play store, Google service framework, and Google play services data, reboot. Then clear play store data again. You shouldn't have any more issues.

No experience with pre-installed Google Play, but after installing with GMSInstaller it was necessary to clear cache and data for Play and Play services. After clearing restart.
