Taking note of this element, Fortnite is finally available in the beta version for iOS and Android. And no need to add, but people are already going crazy about it.
But wait, you need to be cautious before jumping into it. Due to its immense success and rage, many dubious pages and apps are posing as the Fortnite mobile app, which will do more harm than good to your device. So, to save yourself from any such misadventure, follow our guide to get the Fortnite app on your device.
As the Fortnite's beta version is already out for the iOS and Android platforms, now its time to know 'how to get the Fortnite app on your respective device.'
It’s not as easy as you may have thought. Going to the Google Play Store and trying your luck to find the Fortnitye app will only disappoint you.
The Fortnite is not made available on the Google Play Store because of Google’s policy of taking 30 percent cut of all developer revenue that runs through it. This way, the Epic Games, Fortnite game developers, can save much of their earning due to their trust behind their name.
Moreover, it will give a chance to have a direct relationship between the developers and gamers.
You'll still be able to download it if you're not signed up for the beta, but you won't be able to sign in and play unless you got the email from Epic confirming access to the beta. But I've had a test device and run through the install process, so here's how it works.
Before getting too excited, you need to know whether your device is compatible with the Fortnite game or not. Apart from checking up the performance standards, there is more to it.
In one of the blog post, Fortnite confirmed its beta version for the Android. At the time of the rollout, Fortnite was a closed beta and exclusive to Samsung phones only. Epic also has listed devices on which it will be made available in the near future.

For allowing apps other than the Google Play Store, you need to permit the same. But before that, you should know that by doing so, you are directly exposing your device to the unknown vulnerabilities. On top of that, we already know about the infected apps that have concealed themselves as the Epic Game's official version but are actually a source of malware.
As we know about the Epic Games and its background, it will not be that threating to download the Fortnite Android app directly from there website.
Following are the steps that you need to follow to give access to third-party apps (Android 9):
After going to Install unknown apps, permit the source from where you want to download and install the app.
For running the app, the iOS lot will be the easy-going ones.’ But for Android owners, they need to have the Fortnite Installer installed on the device and for that, find a dedicated install file on the Fortnite website.
The install file APK is of the size 2MB, while the game is more sizeable at 2GB.
The Fortnite game is developed by Epic Games and was first released in 2017. The game comes packed with different modes that share the same general gameplay and game engine.
Save the World is available only for macOS, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One, whereas the Battle Royale is been added to other platforms like Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices, in addition to the former ones.
