Epic Games has released Fortnite for Android—but it’s not available in the Google Play Store. You’ll have to install it manually. At the time of writing, the Android version of Fornite is in beta testing.

Install Fortnite for Samsung Galaxy devices

Epic Games and Samsung have a deal where owners of certain Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets can download and play Fortnite for Android beta.Here’s the list of Samsung devices that are able to access, download, install and play Fortnite:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

If you own one of those above devices, you should first find the pre-installed Galaxy App Store on your home screen. Tap on it, and you should see a big Fortnite banner right on top of the store. Tap on that banner, and you will then be prompted to download the Fortnite installer.
