How to Install the Fortnite Game on an Android Phone Without the Google Play Store

How to download and install from the Samsung Galaxy Android Store


Back in 2018, Samsung struck a deal with Epic to make Fortnite a time exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Store. It is still available for download there for Samsung device owners.


What if I already installed the Android version of Fortnite from the Google Play Store?


The good news is that you can still play this game just fine. The bad news is that you can't update Fortnite. These legal developments come at an interesting time, with the next season starting August 27. Each season brings major updates to the game, and it's unclear whether players with previous versions of the game will be able to participate.


Our advice, you should follow the guide on how to install Fortnite on Android above.


As we all know, Fortnite has been removed from the App Store and Google Play Store after trying to cut the 30% developer fees Apple and Google charge. This news shocked the virtual world because this video game has been downloaded more than 250 million times on iOS and hundreds of millions of times on Android.



Epic countered by filing lawsuits against both companies. It's not looking to make any money out of any of the companies, just that they're uprooting what Epic considers to be the monopolistic practices of the companies. And it comes at a time when Europe and the US are scrutinizing the power of Apple, Google and other tech giants.
