The GApps 4.3 package has been released. Version 20130813 of GApps for CM 10.2 supports the newly released official CM10.2 Nightlies and allows users to install the Google Apps package on devices running CM10.2 Nightly builds or any other Android 4.3 based custom ROMs. Earlier version of GApps, which was released back in March this year, supported JB 4.2.x ROMs only. So it was much needed update released just on time as the official Nightlies of CyanogenMod 10.2 start rolling out. Here’s what’s new in this update:

For those who don’t know, almost all of the custom Android ROMs come without the Google Apps that you usually find on stock ROMs. So if you flash a custom / aftermarket ROM on your device, you will need to flash GApps package separately in order to get the Google Apps like Google Play, Gmail, YouTube and other apps from Google. All of these apps are bundled into one single package and made available for download.
