How to join Fortnite beta on Android and check if your device is supported

Most probably you will not get it immediately (especially if you don't have a high-end Samsung device), but these are steps for joining a waiting list.

  1. Follow this link to the official Fortnite beta website
  2. Sign up with your email
  3. Wait for the invitation email
  4. Open the link from the email and download "Fortnite Installer" app
  5. Install the app ("untrusted sources" flag in system settings should be enabled)
  6. Open the app and follow further installation instructions

Fortnite for Android is a long-awaited game for many people. Apparently, it will not be available on Google Play in nearly future. Epic Games made a decision to distribute Fortnite *.APK through their own website directly.

Apart from that, Fortnite Beta is only available for Samsung devices exclusively for the first 3 days after the Galaxy Note 9 announcement. After that, it will become available for all other Android devices which are capable to handle Fortnite requirements.

Here you can find a list of all capable devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
  • Google: Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL,
  • Asus: ROG Phone, Zenfone 4 Pro, 5Z, V Essential: PH-1
  • Huawei: Honor 10, Honor Play, Mate 10 / Pro, Mate RS, Nova 3, P20 / Pro, V10
  • LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30 / V30+
  • Nokia: 8
  • OnePlus: 5 / 5T, 6
  • Razer: Phone
  • Xiaomi: Blackshark, Mi 5 / 5S / 5S Plus, 6 / 6 Plus, Mi 8 / 8 Explorer / 8SE, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Mi Note 2
  • ZTE: Axon 7 / 7s, Axon M, Nubia / Z17 / Z17s, Nubia Z11

If your Android device is not on the list, you will have to wait until it will become officially supported. I don't believe that anything below Android 7 will ever be supported but nobody knows that for sure.
