If you are OK with having google apps (& eyes) on your phone, you can download and flash gapps (Google APPS). Open gapps (opengapps.org) is a very popular source. Depending on what google functionality you need, you select/download the package you need from the ARM64/android 10 version (for lineage 17).Hey all,
I apologize for the incredibly amateur questions, but I am very new to this (first android phone/first custom ROM load). I successfully installed Lineage 17.1 on my Moto G Power and I am glad to see the F-droid store there. However, there are some apps that I need for work from the google play store (unfortunately they are closed source). How can I get the google play store installed alongside F-droid? Also, any other tips/suggestions for a newbie are greatly appreciated.
Even the smallest packages pico or nano will install google playstore. If you prefer to avoid google framework you can simply download the apk files from places like apkmirror or apkpure. Many of us that avoid google as much as possible install microg and Aurora Store, but that can be a bit of a challenge for newbies.
