For every super loving exciting Android game users, the long-awaited Fortnite on Android is finally here after some months of enviously side-eyeing.
Judging from the super runaway success of Epic’s cartoonish battle Royale shooter, which saw over 100 players of title of nobility out on an island map to be the last fighter standing? We can only but expect nothing less to be surface on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch among others. However, something out of the extraordinary pops up for Android gamers.
While Samsung Galaxy phones have got something of a head start, the beta is now starting to roll out across and over a wider range of Android handsets.
How to Download Fortnite on Android
Unfortunately for Android users, the Fortnite game isn’t available on the Google Play Store like all other apps. The makers of the game intend to partially build a direct, straight relationship with players.
To an extent, we can say that they are also trying to remitting the 30% Google fee for games purchased on PlayStore. Be that as it may, the game still offers an ongoing gaming experience to players. However, before taking a dive, it would be wise enough to consider some of the basics of downloading and playing the fortnite games. Follow the procedures below and enjoy the full gaming experience.

Activate Unknown Sources
Principally, every Android device requires special permission to install and run downloaded apps from external sources. You have to be cautious when turning on this setting to avoid downloading unsafe and unreliable apps. To do this, you’ll have to go to your phone’s Settings tab on Android phones, which is usually a small cog icon found in the drop-down header bar, then scroll down and click on where it says ‘Unknown sources’, tap the toggle to turn on the setting.
How to get the Fortnite Installer
While Apple’s phone users are happily downloading Fortnite from Apple’s App Store, anyone on Android will have to search a dedicated install file on the Fortnite website.
It is advisable to have a functional internet browser on their Smartphones such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer among the likes of others – and go to Epic’s sign-up page for the Android Beta, include a functional mail and get a beta invitation to come through. The email link will direct you to the Fortnite Installer for download summing a total 2mb of storage space. However, the game itself has taken a massive storage space of about 2GB.
So that is it, “Short and simple.” On the off chance that you have a phone that is compatible with the game features and falls among the aforementioned types, then all that is required of you is to simply download the Fortnite installer and apps while avoiding malware and harmful software downloads.
However, this cannot be said to be easier than it is for iPhone users who can easily download the game from the reliable iPhone Apple Store. Regardless, the excitement is what really gets to us. Happy gaming.
