Fortnite has seen custom matchmaking keys go live on PS4 and Xbox One over the weekend - but a lot of players are still in the dark about what they are and what they do. Epic Games has not formally announced the arrival of these keys via its usual channels, but it looks like custom matchmaking has at least entered its test phase on consoles. Players are seeing the Matchmaking button appear in their games since last week's update. When accessed, this mode lets players set their own parameters in Fortnite Battle Royale games, giving them much more control over the sort of experiences they c .
Today is a momentous day, a large step towards having custom matchmaking seems to be coming much quicker than anticiapted. Just recently, Fortnite tweeted out some of the community will be able to test out the custom matchmaking feature. If you’d like to check out this new feature, Twitch streamer DrLupo has the honour of being the first to test it out. This feature is currently only available on PC. Hopefully it makes it way to console in the near future. Update: It seems like the only feature of custom matchmaking right now is password locking the match, so streamers can play with their viewers.
Streamers are telling their viewers what type of game mode they want to play, and the viewers who join the custom match atest to the rule sets. An example of this would be a streamer telling his viewers to drop at tilted towers with only axes being used. Head over to who is currently Live on Twitch playing with his community in custom matches!

It will come to consoles, just give it a bit. I actually saw the password locked matches feature about a month and a half ago, it showed up on my ps4 for about a day, I tried to use it a couple times, but it never worked for me.
