You Can Now Play Fortnite on Android If Your Device Is Supported
The game can only be played on select Samsung devices so far.
Fortnite: Battle Royale launched on iOS devices in March 2018, with the promise that the popular multiplayer game would come to Android later on. The wait is finally over for some Android players, as Fortnite: Battle Royale is now available in beta on select Samsung devices.
Starting today, users with the following Samsung devices will be invited to join the Fortnite Android beta:
Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
Players on Samsung Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 will also receive access to a new in-game Galaxy outfit.
Fortnite isn’t available through the Google Play store (where users typically download Android games and apps); instead, players can download the beta on Fortnite’s website. The Android version supports “Cross Progression” with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac, and iOS, so players can carry their progress over from another platform, rather than starting over from scratch.
Epic, Fortnite’s developer, said it would start rolling out access to more Android players “in the next few days,” and that players will be granted access to the game in waves. If your teens are interested in signing up to play, have them visit this website to join the invite list.
