Fortnite's Android Release Will Skip Google Play

Fortnite's Android Release Will Skip Google Play

Spotted by Reddit users (via 9to5Google), Google is now somewhat acknowledging the fact that Fortnite is not available on Google Play. And not just after the initial download, but for every update as well?

The whole release of Fortnite for Android outside of the Google Play eco-system has caused some consternation over security.

This long waiting time has perhaps lead to some impatience, and thus users are using an APK to download Android Fortnite before it's release. Videos such as the one shown above show how tantalisingly close you are to playing a great third-person shooter on your tiny device. On top of that, only owners of certain Samsung smartphones were able to play the game at launch. Fortnite won't even be available for download on the Play store. You'll leap out of the Battle Bus with a huge grin on your face, get oh-so-close to shooting the first unsuspecting player you see, and have the game quit out within a few seconds of you landing on the ground. That 30 percent revenue cut is the same for Google Play.


Epic Games recently made the controversial decision to release the Android version of Fortnite on its own website rather than through the Google Play Store.

With Android 9.0 Pie, you'll get new Swipe Gesture navigation, Rotation suggestion, Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness, Smart replies, App actions, Text selection, Redesigned Quick Setting tiles and Notification Panel, Redesigned Volume Options, Brand new Settings, Privacy, Digital Wellbeings (Dashboard) and Winddown Mode, and more.
