If you've been patiently waiting to give Fornite a go on Android, you might want to fire up the installer again.
When Fortnite's Android launch was announced at Samsung's Note9 launch last week, it came with a slight caveat: the battle royale juggernaut would be available on select Samsung phones for a period. The exclusivity window appears to be closing though, with the game letting non-Samsung phones (I'm on a LG G7, for instance) into the main menu and into games.
Previously - as of late this afternoon - Fortnite would let non-Samsung users pre-load from the official installer, but you wouldn't be able to play without sideloading the game. Fortunately, the exclusivity seems to have lifted.
As a reminder, here's the full list of devices Epic says will be able to play Fortnite on Android:
- Google: Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL
