It’s understandable that you want to find a way to play Fortnite on your Chromebook, but you may need to reconsider. Chromebook does not have an official Fortnite download option, and methods for doing so are not always safe or optimized. You also need to consider that Chromebooks are not gaming PCs and will struggle to run the game.

Can you play Fortnite on a Chromebook?

Fortnite is not traditionally intended for Chromebook, which is evidenced by the fact that you actually can’t find an official download for Fortnite on Chromebook. That does not mean that you can’t play Fortnite on your own Chromebook, just that you’d need to do it in less than safe or stable ways. You’d need to review these methods and consider the risk involved in downloading Fortnite through unofficial avenues or the performance challenges in unsupported styles.

Is there a way to get Fortnite on Chromebook?

The most popular method for accessing Fortnite on Chromebook is by sideloading (downloading through an unofficial source) the Fortnite Android version onto your computer. To do this, you’ll need to search for a Fortnite Android APK file. You can also enable remote desktop controls and take the Fortnite game from another source. This will essentially be a type of screen mirroring and is rarely efficient for games that require quick actions.

You can attempt to play Fortnite on Chromebook via Xbox Cloud Gaming, but it may not be as promising as it sounds. When using the Xbox Cloud Gaming feature via Chrome web browser, some players have managed to get Fortnite up and running. The caveat here is that there have been numerous complaints about lag while playing Fortnite, poor performance of the Xbox Cloud Gaming service, and general disruption.

How to Play Fortnite on a school Chromebook

Trying to play Fortnite on a school-issued Chromebook is going to be even more tricky, thanks to restrictions in place. All schools are different, but many disable developer features and shady websites from student use. Even if you do manage to download the unofficial version, you’re running the risk of attracting viruses to your Chromebook. If you do not actually own your Chromebook, you’ll want to reconsider trying risky methods like APK installation. It may be possible to use the Xbox Cloud Gaming method, but many schools tend to have these sorts of services blocked.

Does Chromebook have the system requirements for Fortnite?

Another issue you’ll run into when trying to run Fortnite on your Chromebook is that the computer is not powerful enough to run Fortnite at its optimal level. You might get away with this (with some lag) by doing the Android APK method, but this will be especially true with the remote desktop or Xbox Cloud Gaming options. Chromebooks are intended for light use like schoolwork and are not meant to be gaming computers.
