Fortnite Android Beta Now Available For Everyone, No Invite Required

Fortnite Android Beta Now Available For Everyone, No Invite Required

You still need a compatible phone.

Fortnite Android Beta is now available on all compatible devices. You no longer need an invite, just a capable Android device to play Fortnite on the go.

Fortnite on Android was first released as a Samsung Galaxy exclusive, with invites rolling out to select compatible devices. Now, any Android device that meets the system requirements can play Epic's massively-popular battle royale game without an invite to the beta. Here are the recommended system requirements:

  • OS: Android 8.0 or higher, 64-bit
  • RAM: Recommended 4GB or higher
  • GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher

As a reminder, Epic has its own launcher for Fortnite forgoing the Google Play Store. This did however leave a safety vulnerability in Epic's in-app launcher, which Epic quickly fixed. You can download the beta through the Fortnite website.

Check out our Fortnite Android guide for more info including a list of compatible devices.

Fortnite Season 8 is well underway. We've got all the info, including the Fortnite Week 3 Challenges. We've also got The Fortnite Expedition Outpost Locations.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
