We know Fortnite is not available for Android right now. Epic Games started the fight with Google and Apple by letting users initiate direct in-app purchases. This move comes so as to avoid giving Apple and Google a 30 percent cut of in-app sales. However, both the companies did not like this move and banned the apps from their respective Play Stores.
