For Android 6.0/6.0.1 custom ROMs, you will need to use Android 6.0 Marshmallow compatible Gapps. Without this, you will not have Play Store on the phone. Make sure you install Gapps so you have Play Store. These Marshmallow Gapps are 100% compatible with any Android smartphone, tablet, or any other device that runs Android.
The following Gapps is very simple and minimal and includes the Play Store. If you need other Google apps, you can use Play Store to install them.
These Gapps do not come with a camera app, you can use Google Camera app on the Play Store.
These Gapps will work on CM13 ROMs and any other Android 6.0 ROMs such as Resurrection Remix ROM, CrDroid ROM, AICP ROM, AOKP ROM, Dirty Unicorns ROM, and much more. Gapps are really ONLY for AOSP ROMS(What is AOSP?)
Note: Before you begin, check the Android version of your ROM(either on the ROM page where you got the ROM or if you already have it installed, check Settings->About Phone) and make sure you have Android 6.0 or 6.0.1 Marshmallow. These Android 6.0/6.0.1 Gapps will work on any ROM with latest Marshmallow. Please DO NOT install on other Android versions like Lollipop or Nougat as you will risk bricking your phone.

These are “pico” version of Gapps which are minimal and give you Play Store. We recommend pico over other bigger Gapps as they do not take up much system space and bigger Gapps might not install on older Android devices as they may lack the storage space.
How to Install Marshmallow Gapps
Note: the following tutorial assumes you already have TWRP recovery installed. If you have NEVER rooted your phone or NEVER installed TWRP recovery, you will first have to install TWRP recovery. TWRP recovery installation is different for every Android device so please follow a tutorial that you can trust.
Installation is easy, follow these steps:
Step 1. Reboot into TWRP or CWM.
Step 2. Do a factory reset (if installing a new custom Marshmallow ROM).
Step 3. Install ROM.
Step 4. Install Marshmallow Gapps
Step 5. Reboot.
That’s it! If you have trouble, take a look at How to Install Marshmallow ROM using TWRP!
Note: Some ROMs DO NOT REQUIRE Gapps such as TouchWiz-based custom ROMs for Samsung Galaxy phones or LG custom ROMs based on LG firmware. If in doubt, you can always install your custom ROM FIRST, then after booting if you don’t see Play Store, you can go ahead and flash Gapps after using TWRP separately.
Q: My phone is getting errors after flashing both ROM and Gapps!
A: Try doing a factory reset in TWRP recovery and rebot without reflashing Gapps. Sometimes that will get rid of all errors, so flash ROM, Gapps, THEN do a factory reset.
