How to Install ‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ on any Android device

The beta version of one of the biggest games in the world, Fortnite: Battle Royale, is finally available for Android devices, after successful versions in consoles and iOS. Unfortunately for many players, the game opened with an exclusive agreement for Samsung devices as part of the Galaxy Note 9 launch.

But if you're on an Android device that's not Samsung, all is not lost. While access is still limited, you can register on a waiting list and pre-download the game for access as soon as it is available. Here we show you how to download Fortnite: Battle Royale on Android.

A warning before starting

Slow down before rushing to download everything called "Fortnite" from the Google Play Store. Epic Games has not released Fortnite: Battle Royale in the Google Play Store, so you will not find it there. It is important to note that this means that no app on the Play Store will be the official Fortnite app, no matter how strong it is.

Start by accessing the Game Launcher application, tapping the icon labeled Fortnite Installer, then clicking Install and open to install the launcher. This application is not the game, but a separate application that will be used to download and update the main Fortnite application in the absence of the Google Play Store.

The first time you open the application you will be asked to grant permission to access your storage space. There is nothing harmful here; You must have access to download the game. Once granted, press the large yellow installation button and let the initial files install.

Once installed, open the Fortnite launcher and press the yellow start button to start the game. This will start downloading the main files. Feel free to leave the game for a while while you are downloading the necessary files; It's a big download and it could take some time. After that, Fortnite will take some time to optimize the content to adapt it to your device, but once it's done, you can log in to your account (or create a new one) and play.


If you're not lucky enough to have one of the Samsung devices on the list above, then you're stuck waiting for now. However, you can still download the game in advance and get ready.

Start by signing up for the waiting list. It's easy to register: you can do it from your PC or mobile device and you can speed things up by accessing an existing Fortnite account, if you have one. The process asks you to select your Android device in a drop-down box, but do not worry if you can not find your particular device, because at the bottom is the "Other Android device" option.

After registering, you will receive an email from Epic Games. You will need to access it from your mobile device, as it is a direct link to the Fortnite installer, then tap the link to download it. Tap the file once the download is complete and press Install when prompted. It may be necessary to grant archiving permissions to complete this process.

After that, you can tap Open at the end of the installation process or open the Fortnite Installer application from the application drawer or the home screen. As with the Samsung phone, you will be asked to confirm the storage permissions for the installation, so do not hesitate to click Allow when prompted. You may also need to grant permission to the application to install the Fortnite game, so if you see a system message, press Settings and then check the Allow from this source box. Then press the Back button and press Install.

When finished, press Open or open the application from your applications, and Fortnite: Battle Royale will start the download. This may take some time, so drink a drink and calm down to wait. Once completed, you can log in to your account, but if you have not received an email confirming access, it's all you can do right now. But at least the hardest part has already been made, and you can go much faster when access to your account is allowed.

This is all we have for you at the moment, but we will update this article when access is available to more people. Until then, review your skills with our Fortnite tips and tricks article and get ready to hop on a bus.
