Play Fortnite on Android Mobile Devices - Guide

Fortnite: Battle Royale mobile version of the game is currently available only for iOS devices. If you want to play the game on an Android phone, then you can do it indirectly.

For this to work, you need a powerful PC, a good mobile device and above all a fast internet connection that can send the game from the PC to the phone.

These are the requirements to play Fortnite on Android devices

For the method to work, you need good hardware. Below you can find what you need to play Fortnite on an Android device:

- Steam on your PC
- Windows 7 at least, Mac OS X 10.10, SteamOS or Linux Ubuntu 12.04
- A PC connected to a LAN cable
- A fast internet connection: Steam recommends a 5 GHz network
- Android device with at least Android 5.0

Your Android device must be logged into the same network as the PC, which means that you cannot play Fortnite at work or in the playground on your Android. The game is only "home" or where you have both devices registered in the same network. But you can connect the controller to your phone, which greatly improves the operation of Fortnite on the phone.

If you have all the above requirements, then you must first download the free Steam Link app in the Play Store. Since the app is still in the beta version, it can occasionally crash.

Fix Home Streaming Issues

Your phone must be near the router for the connection to be optimal. You should also make sure that in-home streaming is enabled. Click on the tab Steam on your PC and open the settings. Under in-home streaming you activate the option.
