While this move will make Epic Games more money than otherwise, it will also set up a risky precedent for Google. While changing them for a one time download is unlikely to harm the majority of folks, it's when they'll fail to set settings back to default that problems might occur.

Subsequently, once this wave starts to subside, the company will then bring Fortnite on Play Store.
