Google just did the right thing with Fortnite on Google Play

Google just did the right thing with Fortnite on Google Play

Many Android fans argue that the installation process leaves users vulnerable because it forces them to allow apps from "unknown sources".

If you are truly impatient, go slap Magisk on your Android smartphone - so you can have root access without modifying system files - and wait for someone to make a workaround that fools Fortnite into thinking your smartphone is a beta-friendly Samsung smartphone. When users search for "fortnite" on Google Play, they're now presented with a special message reading "Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play". This equates to over $54M in revenue for Apple, according to Sensor Tower's estimate, which is based off of Apple's 30% cut of all in-app spending on games sold on the App Store.

After months of wait, Fortnite has finally graced the Android platform.

Among this year's scheduled performers: Walking Dead on Broadway, Judas Priest , Arch Enemy , Cannibal Corpse and Die from Sorrow. But this year's festival also featured a couple of on-the-run metalheads who were clearly enticed by a stunning bill of bands.

Researchers add that Epic Games could be swarmed by complaints from users who want to play the game, safely download it, or are not aware of installing APKs on their phones. However, underneath this message is a link to the Android version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is available via Google Play. You'll find plenty of places you can obsessively check to get a modified.APK onto your device, and your character actually into the game, before Epic closes any workarounds. That decision was also followed up with a deal with Samsung to make Fortnite uniquely available to Galaxy Note 9 for a pre-defined period of time. Searching for "Fortnite" or "Fortnite Battle Royale" won't get you anywhere.

Then you should be able to request an invite to the Android beta and, if successful, you will recieve an email asking you to pre-install Fortnite on your phone. From there, you'll be able to start playing. Once the game is open to all, users can head to the official game's website and click download and choose Android instead of PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and iOS.
