How do you play Fortnite on your Samsung smartphone?

At the beginning of August, Epic Games announced that Fortnite can now also be played on Android devices, especially on Samsung devices. If you want to play Fortnite on a Samsung smartphone, you do so via the Fortnite Installer, which can be found at Samsung's Galaxy Apps (and not in the Google Play Store). In this article we explain exactly how this works.

How do you install Fortnite?

Important to know: Fortnite is not available in the Google Play Store, because Epic Games wants to distribute the game without the intervention of Google. Fortunately, installing Fortnite on Samsung is not difficult at all. Via Samsung Galaxy Apps, the app store of Samsung itself, you download the Fortnite Installer. This is not the game itself, but an app with which you install Fortnite by simply clicking the "Install" button. This can take a while, because Fortnite is a fairly large file. You also install updates via the Installer.

If you are going to play Fortnite via the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or the Tab S4, you get an exclusive extra; the special Galaxy skin. For this you have to play 3 pots and then wait a maximum of 3 days. You will receive the skin automatically. Since you only get this purple outfit on the Tab S4 or the Note 9, this promises to be one of the most rare skins. You can even show off in Fortnite with your new smartphone or tablet.
