Fortnite is now available on a variety of Android devices. After a brief exclusivity phase of Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, including the Galaxy Note 9 the Android beta is now open to many more users.
Of course, Fortnite is already on platforms like Windows, Mac OS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iOS and Nintendo Switch. The game is also free on Android, but you can not download it from the Google Play Store. Instead, Epic Games is offering Fortnite for Android as a download on its website (here's the reason).
Do not worry if you have questions about how this works. We guide you through the steps in the following process.

The installer works just like any other browser download except that it is a bootable program. When you try to start the installer, your phone prompts you to give your browser permission to install apps. Most Android apps come from the Google Play Store, so this behavior is not allowed by default.
While enabling the installation via the browser is easy, this setting opens your device for a potential web security flaw. Make sure you can only access the installer download link from the Epic Games email and make sure the link redirects you to the official site, not a malicious, similar page. In any case, we recommend that you download an Android antivirus app before granting this access to your browser.
Once you have downloaded the Fortnite installer, you must install Fortnite yourself. The download should only take a few minutes, but it depends on your network speed. After that, the game lures all pending updates and optimizes for your device.
You will be asked to log in to save the progress on all devices and you do not have to start with the progression and character customization right from the start.  Start Playing
Fortnite on Android works just like any other version of the game. Your goal is to be the last player to stand and eliminate enemies on your way.
