How to install Fortnite on an Android mobile phone? Fortnite is no longer on Google Play, so you can not download it from the Google store. If you have it installed you can continue playing, but you will not receive any more updates. Luckily there is an alternative and official way to install it from outside that works 100%, and it is very simple to do.
Android is a bit more open than iOS, because in this operating system it is possible to install apps from outside of Google Play. In fact, it is the same system that Epic used when it launched Fortnite on Android, in order to not pay the 30% commission to Google Play. But it was forced to join Google Play because many users could not find the game.
