Fortnite Android beta comes to non-Samsung phones, but invite still needed

Fortnite for Android reminds users to be safe, and to block installation from unknown sources

After downloading the game, the game posts a notification to users reminding them to; "make their device as secure as possible"; by disabling the permission settings which had to be changed to allow the game to be downloaded in the first place.

Epic Games has had awesome successes where the iOS platform is concerned with the globally popular Fortnite title. As promised by Epic Games, Fortnite's wider rollout to Android devices begins today, although still in beta form.

A dispute between Google and Epic Games over the fees Google charges to distribute apps on its platform meant Epic Games chose to sell the game their own way.

Android users must download the game directly from Epic's own website instead.

Had the game been distributed through the Play Store, then, Google could have pocketed upwards of $54 million- roughly the same amount Apple has made from Fortnite so far.

The next step after that is to receive the invitation needed to actually sideload Fortnite on your non-Galaxy Android device.

"We believe gamers will benefit from competition among software sources on Android".

Searching for "Fortnite" on the Play Store will yield the result you see above.

It isn't necessarily Epic's fault if a user bypasses the official Fortnite installer and downloads an APK from the internet but it could have been avoided.

Epic Games launched the game on Apple's store in mid-March, and has since then earned more than United States dollars 180 million on iOS devices.

Unfortunately, most users won't get past the sign-in process as only invited players will be able to launch the game. Google is well aware of this, and that there is the potential for fake, scam apps to appear, tricking users into downloading something malicious. Searchers are also advised that Fortnite rival PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is available to download.
