Here’s how you can download Fortnite for Android smartphones
In this beautiful era of PUBG, another amazing game called Fortnite made an entry in the android market. Unlike Apple, which only allows apps to be downloaded from its own Appstore, Google’s platform is more open. After April, Fortnite raised an urge among Android users and the reason is that it was only available for iOS users before. But if we look upon the rumors of past few weeks then it was clearly hinted, that the game will soon be enjoyed by Android users too. And surprisingly at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event in NewYork, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney himself announced that the popular battle royale title is available in beta version for Galaxy phones. Owners of the S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4 can download Fortnite from the Samsung Game Launcher app. This announcement made all Samsung users on a cloud nine. But that exclusiveness lasted no longer.
