Google Play Store warns users about potential fake Fortnite downloads

How To Get Android 9 Pie Digital Wellbeing Feature On Essential Phone, OnePlus 6 Right Now Google Digital Wellbeing Now Available in Beta

According to the developer, this decision was made in part to bypass the 30% "store tax" that would normally be applied to purchases made on Google Play. And not just after the initial download, but for every update as well?

If you're running Android 9 Pie on a compatible phone, you can download Digital Wellbeing now from the Google Play Store. The game is available on PC and Mac, home consoles like Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, and even launched on iOS earlier in March for iPhone and iPad users. That's easy to do if you're a Fortnite fan with an iOS device.

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. Apple doesn't allow app downloads from anywhere but the official App Store on its mobile devices. You'll leap out of the Battle Bus with a huge grin on your face, get oh-so-close to shooting the first unsuspecting player you see, and have the game quit out within a few seconds of you landing on the ground. The latter bit was a direct appeal to gamers and Epic Games' partnership with Samsung will not go down with Google.

MI turnout surge cheers Democrats; GOP expects…
Jeff Colyer. "I'm here to tell you: right here right now, come November, the red wave is coming right through MI ", he said. Mike Bishop in what is expected to be a competitive general election.

So there is hope for playing the world's biggest game on any Android phone right now, but you'll have to go elsewhere to learn that information.

By now, everyone who's been paying attention to news about Fortnite on Android knows that it'll only be available via Epic's site after the Samsung exclusivity period ends, and not on the Play Store.
