Fortnite is one of the most popular Battle Royale videos games along with PUBG Mobile this year. These games are also available for Android devices, but they won’t be supported on Chromebook devices any time soon.
Epic Games has only recently released Fortnite Battle Royale for various smartphones running Android. They are releasing the game via APK, as they do not wish to put the game through Google Play Store. The game has already gone over 15 million downloads on Android devices, but this number should get higher when the “closed beta” stage is over and they optimize the game for other devices, too.
At this moment Fortnite Battle Royale Beta has been released with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 devices, but there are several other smartphones capable of running it, too: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, S9 and S9 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy Tab S4, Nokia 8, Huawei Honor 10, Huawei Honor Play, Huawei Mate 10 and Pro, Huawei Mate RS, Huawei Nova 3, Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, Huawei V10, ZTE Axon 7 and Axon 7s, Axon M, ZTE Nubia, Z17, Z17s, Nubia Z11, Xiaomi Blackshark, Xiaomi Mi 5, Xiaomi Mi 5S, Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus, Xiaomi 6 nad 6 Plus, Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer, Xiaomi Mi 8SE, Xiaomi Mi Mix, Mi MIx 2 and 2S, Xiaomi Mi Note 2, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL, Asus ROG Phone, Asus Zenfone 4 Pro, Asus 5Z, and Z, Essential PH-1, and LG G5, LG G6, LG G7 ThinQ, LG V20, LG V30, and LG V30 Plus.
If your smartphone is not listed above, then do not panic as the Fortnite Battle Royale Beta might still be supported. Just go to Epic Games Fortnite and register your email in order to get an APK download link and test it on your device. However, note that in case you are trying to sideload the APK on a Chromebook, then that will not work. You might be able to install this video game on your Chromebook only in case you are running the Dev channel version of Chrome OS, but you will need to be an advanced user in order to complete the installation.
If you are an advanced Chrome OS user, and you still wish to test the new Fortnite Battle Royale Beta on your Chromebook, then you can do it by following the instructions posted by some XDA developers. Note that we cannot be blamed in case you lose any important data files after enabling the Dev channel for your Chrome OS. Check the XDA guide here for more info on how to get it installed on your Chromebook device. NOTE: your Chromebook also requires a touchscreen and to feature support for Android apps.
