Google Makes Embarrassing Error Following Fortnite Android Release

  • How To Get Android 9 Pie Digital Wellbeing Feature On Essential Phone, OnePlus 6 Right Now

The reason the company behind Fortnite has made a decision to release the game on Android without the Play store is simple: money. The game will appear in the Samsung Game Launcher and in the Galaxy Apps store.

In response, Google has a new warning on the Play Store letting gamers know that Fortnite is not available.

Now, the fundamental difference between iOS and Android, which is open versus closed source will cost Google a hefty amount of money. As such, those who search for "Fortnite" on Google Play will see a message informing them that it is unavailable on the platform. Malware can also come bundled with the actual official Android version of the game downloaded from an unofficial third-party. Fortnite won't even be available for download on the Play store. 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.

Omarosa Claims She Walked In On Trump Eating Paper In Oval Office
Newman claims in her book that her former boss, President Donald Trump , is a racist who has repeatedly used the N-word. Omarosa says she rejected the offer. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

If more developers follow Epic's path, then the road to unauthorized and potentially harmful downloads on Android devices will only widen.

Thing is, the company that created it, Epic Games, just announced that it won't be publishing it via Google Play, the market where most users - in the Western hemisphere, anyway - get most of their apps.

This long waiting time has perhaps lead to some impatience, and thus users are using an APK to download Android Fortnite before it's release. Subsequently, once this wave starts to subside, the company will then bring Fortnite on Play Store.
