Patch notes for v5.40 of Fortnite are up for digesting, and as always, there’s a lot to take in. Not only is there a completely new game mode called High Stakes (which sounds like great fun for squads of 4 players), but Android players also received a few good things in this patch.
Following the update, Android players will have access to VOIP, which will let you communicate with your team directly in-game. Additionally, more devices are now supported by the game, including the Essential Phone, as well as various Motorola, HTC, and Sony Xperia devices.
Here are the changes specific to Android.
- Added VOIP to Android.
- Expanded device support to the Essential-PH, Motorola, HTC, Sony Xperia devices.
- Major memory optimization on Android devices with Adreno GPUs. This addresses the performance degradation seen due to memory pressure.
- Corrected some issues with screen resolution in certain locales on Android.
Now get out there and hop into a game!
