On Thursday, Epic Games announced that it's opening up the Fortnite beta to all compatible Android devices, no more invites needed. The Android version launched a few weeks ago as an invite-only beta, but now it's open to all players. Galaxy Note 9 and Tab S4 users received unique Fortnite Galaxy skins for being part of the club.

To play Fortnite for Android, you'll need to visit Fortnite.com from your Android phone. So far, Fortnite's Android beta has only been available on an invitational basis.

However, there are a couple of things you should be aware of before heading over to Epic's website to download the game.
