You can fix the Fortnite Android beta error that shows, “Get on the Waiting List” when you try to start the Fortnite beta on a compatible phone. This is an official fix, which will help you start playing Fortnite on Android right now if you have a Samsung device.
This fix will not allow you to play the Fortnite Android beta early on a non-Samsung device, but it will help you play Fortnite Battle Royale on Android without waiting for Epic Games to fix this issue.
How to Fix the Fortnite Android Get on the Waiting List Error
The official fix for the “Get on the Waiting List” error is pretty basic, and it may not work the first time. Thankfully this should help you start playing Fortnite sooner.
Epic Games shares the fix on Reddit, which is basically to restart the app and log in, but there are a few additional steps to take.
- Make sure you’re using a compatible Android phone or tablet.
- Log in with your Epic account.
- See the Get on the Waiting List error.
- Quit the Fortnite game completely.
- Open the game and try to log in again.
Epic Games support says you may need to try these steps multiple times in order to get it to work. Once you are able to successfully log in and play one game, you won’t see it again.
Epic is also working on a fix for the issue that should roll out in another update in the near future. This update may also bring fixes to the compatibility issues with HTC, Moto and Sony devices.
