Download Fortnite for Android on non-Samsung phones

Android 9.0 Pie update for Moto E5 Play

It is a decision likely motivated by Google's 30% cut on all microtransactions, and since revenue generated by Fortnite comes from exclusively from mictrotransactions, Epic Games are unsurprisingly unwilling to hand a chunk of this to Google. Unfortunately, the very fact that it arrived what feels to us to be earlier than expected may explain one glaring omission - Digital Wellbeing, one of the features touted as the big improvement added to Android 9 Pie, is simply missing.

Epic confirmed to GameSpot that Android users will not be able to download Fortnite on their devices from Google's digital store, but rather through its own service. There's only one title (Battle Breakers), and it's not available yet. Apple doesn't allow app downloads from anywhere but the official App Store on its mobile devices. Fortnite will be available eventually, you just have to be patient. However, for Android users, that won't be an option.

Epic Games' free-to-play multiplatform game just crossed the billion-dollar threshold thanks to in-game purchases where players pay upgrades to customize their characters. Here's what you need to have in place to get in on that even if you are using an Essential Phone or OnePlus 6, the two other devices capable of running Android 9 Pie at this time.

Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld
Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now". That is the key this season". "I am the boss and if I expect you to do something then you need to provide it".

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways.

Thing is, the company that created it, Epic Games, just announced that it won't be publishing it via Google Play, the market where most users - in the Western hemisphere, anyway - get most of their apps. Epic will also offer downloads of the game on its website in the coming days for most Android smartphones.
