Fortnite beta is now available on all Android devices — something that non-iOS using Battle Royale lovers have been eagerly waiting for. Until this move from the developers, the game was only available for a closed beta group and Samsung Galaxy owners. But it can now be played on any Android device without needing an invite. However, you still cannot download the app from the Google Play store. A lot of versions that claim to be Fortnite are available on the Play store and certain websites have also put up a download link. You might want to skip all of that because there are high chances that it could be malware. Here’s everything you need to know about how to download Fortnite on Android, before you can electro shuffle all day long:
How to download Fortnite beta on your Android devices
While most app developers go through official channels like the Play store when releasing their product, Fortnite’s developers, Epic Games, have decided to bypass it and are banking on the game’s popularity to inspire gamers to take the effort to download. But before you do so, ask yourself: Can you handle it? You will need a strong processor and a respectable RAM to run the game. What this essentially translates into is that a reliable premium-to-mid range smartphone must be a part of your arsenal.

Next, you will need to log on to www. fortnite.com/android on your smartphone to directly download Fortnite. Otherwise, there is also an option to scan a QR code on your desktop to download the game on your phone. Tapping the link will initiate a download of an APK file, which will soon install Fortnite on your smartphone. You will have to adjust some of the security settings, which will come as part of the instructions during your download. Fortnite’s installer is a heavy file and can cost you a lot of data if you’re not connected to the WiFi.
Your Android phone knows better and might show you a warning where it won’t install unknown apps. This is because most of the apps that you find on the internet are malware and could seriously damage your phone. But to install Fortnite, you will need to make an exception where you will have to go to your settings and click on the option; Allow from this source.
Once that is done, your downloaded file will install the game as you wait patiently. But that’s not all. Once the installer has found its place on your device, you will still have to install the game which is nearly a 2GB file. Only then can you finally sign in and play.
While Fortnite is finally on your Android devices, it is still technically a beta version and your in-game experience could be a little sluggish. But Epic Games has promised that the security patches and updates will be available soon which can make your game much smoother in the coming days. The game’s developers have also confirmed that the Bluetooth controllers and voice chat options will be introduced at some point later on and finally, do not delete the installer file after you install the game. The installer enables updates and patches and right now, your game will need a lot of them.
