Fortnite's Android Release Will Skip Google Play

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

"Digital Wellbeing is now available in Beta Preview for devices running Android 9.0", the app's listing on the Google Play Store notes. 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.

When Epic Games launched Fortnite on Android earlier this week, it did so in an unprecedented manner. Additionally, to download files outside of Play Store requires users to tinker around with security permissions.

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.

West Nile Virus found in chickens living in Kenner
The Montana Department of Livestock has confirmed the first reported cases of equine West Nile Virus in Montana in 2018. It is spread through the bites of infected mosquitos; horses can not transmit the virus directly to people.

Fortnite has grossed more than $180 million so far on iOS devices, where it has been available exclusively since launching March 15 in an invite-only beta that later expanded to all App Store users.

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways. This is likely to deter developers from creating apps with the word "Fortnite" in the title to take advantage of the confusion over the release.
