There have been a lot of questions regarding the download of Fortnite on Android, not only in 2022 itself but before as well. The reason for the vast amount of questions was the small scandal where Google removed Fortnite from the Play Store. Focusing on providing the solution to our previous question, how should you download Fortnite on Android? There are a handful of ways that you can use for the issue which include the use of Xcloud Gaming, uptodown and taptap for Fortnite.

Why Can You Not Download Fortnite From Google Play Store Anymore?

Basically, Epic Games tried to start the in-app purchases and source the income from the game directly to itself without paying either Google Play Store or iOS store. This caused some major concerns to both providers. Furthermore, Fortnite was banned from both and has only been recently available in iOS App store.

The simplest way to download Fortnite on any android phone would be through the Epic Games store especially since google removed it from the Play Store. If you’re a Samsung user, things might be a bit easier for you since you can directly download the game from Samsung store. iOS store also has Fortnite available. The game is also available for PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch users.

Apart from iOS and Samsung users the problem still pertains for the rest. Moving on to answer your next immediate question.

How to install Epic Games Store on Android?

You can download the Epic Games App or Store from their official website. Just follow the steps given below:

Step-1: Search for ‘Epic Games download for android’ on Google.

Step-2: Follow the link that has ‘epicgames‘ in its URL.

Step-3: Click on ‘Download the App from Epic Games’. (This will start the download)

Step-4: Allow necessary permissions to download the file

Step-5: Click on Install. (If you get a prompt asking allow your browser to install the game, click on settings and configure the permission to install through browser.)

You can follow the same steps for downloading the game from Samsung Store, you’ll only have to click on the option saying ‘Download the App from Samsung Galaxy Store’ in step-3. Once Fortnite is installed you can enjoy the game! Now there is another alternate option to this solution which we’ll discuss now.

Alternate Option:

According to Epic Games this alternative doesn’t even require you to download the game on your device! This is known as cloud gaming (for instance Xcloud Gaming for Fortnite) and the game runs on the cloud.

There’s one more barrier to this alternative. You are needed to have a Xbox account to try the Xcloud Gaming for Fortnite. Or if you’re trying from GeForce NOW you need to have a respective account for playing Fortnite using this cloud. This way you don’t need to download Fortnite on your Android phone.

Beware of Other Options:

We are going to mention these options but you are at you own risk to try them out. There are two other alternatives we would like to discuss further about. The first one will be Uptodown for Fortnite.

Note: The website or writer are not responsible for your actions taken from the instructions mentioned below.

Download Fortnite from Uptodown for Android (2022):

Uptodown is an apk provider website and can directly provide you the latest version of Fortnite. As a bonus you also get to download and try out the older versions of Fortnite. Another option is to download Epic Games Store from this website and then download Fortnite through the store. That is how you can download Fortnite for Android in 2022.

Downloading Fortnite From Taptap:

Taptap is yet another website that provides ‘apk’s like Fortnite. Now you can follow the above procedure and do the same for this website as well.

Although the trust ratings for both of the websites above are quite high as many users have used it before, we will still instruct you to be cautious. All alternatives including Xcloud Gaming, Uptodown and Taptap are great if you want to try Fortnite. And that is it for this guide, keep following us for more such how-to guides and we’ll keep you posted.
