Google has made it easier for Fortnite fans to not fall for fake listings by noting that the game isn’t available on Google Play Store yet. So now when you will search for the keywords such as “Fortnite“, “Fortnite Mobile” or “Fortnite Battle Royal” on Google Play app on Android, it’ll show you a message – “Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play.” But the same message does not appear on the web version of Google Play as yet.

This information came from Reddit users (via 9to5google), where quite a few comments posted that when someone searches for “Fortnite” or “Fortnite Battle Royale,” or a few other derivatives, Google Play prompts with a message instead of showing results.

The Fortnite beta for Android was announced yesterday during the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event by Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney. It was clearly said that the game will initially be exclusive to Samsung devices, and other eligible non-Samsung devices will receive it in “the next few days”.

Epic Games and Samsung also provided a list of devices that will be compatible with Fortnite Beta. This list of devices includes Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, S8+, Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge.

All Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 users will get an exclusive Fortnite Galaxy skin that can help them stand apart in the game. In addition to that, users who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 between August 10, and August 23 will get the option to either choose 15,000 V-bucks (in-game currency) with Fortnite Galaxy skin or a pair of AKG noise-canceling headphones. Users who want both of these things can get both for $99.
