But when the game opens up to all Android devices in the coming days, gamers won't find the app in the official Google Play Store. In addition to that, users who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 between August 10, and August 23 will get the option to either choose 15,000 V-bucks (in-game currency) with Fortnite Galaxy skin or a pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones. There's only one title (Battle Breakers), and it's not available yet.
The userbase of Android is much higher than iOS so even if the Google Play Store doesn't charge fees as high as Apple, its still a huge loss for the company, at least $50 million as suggested by data analysts. That's easy to do if you're a Fortnite fan with an iOS device.
Assuming you've got a compatible phone that's running Digital Wellbeing, feel free to download the app now so you don't have to keep jumping into your settings just to see your phone usage.

The message doesn't actually tell users where they can "safely" download the game, nor the status of the game as a beta, and as an exclusive for Samsung devices for the time being. But you can still install Android Pie right now via AOSP ROM. Developer "argraur" has successfully ported Android 9.0 Pie for the Nexus 5x.
Epic Games, developer of the immensely popular battle royale game, decided not to go through the Play Store for the application on Android phones, instead using its own launcher. Following Fortnite's success on Android other game developers will also follow suit.
