Play HQ Trivia Everyday on Android and Win Real Money

HQ Trivia has been a popular game show since it was launched on iOS last year. Yes, you read it right, not game but game. Generally, on game events, participants win prizes and that also applies to HQ Trivia. The only difference is you do not need to audition and be selected. As long as you have an iPhone, and now Android too, you can participate in live performances. While such apps are launched in iOS first, consider that only the testing phase. The actual test begins when an app is made available for Android and billions of users. HQ Trivia has been available on Android just a day before the New Year.

What is HQ Trivia?

This application is called the future of direct television and a sign of dystopia by the Internet. This is because the game trivia is not much different from other game shows like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The only thing missing is a live studio audience. Every day at 3 pm and 9 pm local time, the host enters the mobile screen of many people watching together and presents a series of 12 multiple-choice questions. If you manage to get all 12 questions correctly, you will get a share of the prize along with others who manage it as well. Failed once and you went out, no life path.

This app tells you it's usually 5 minutes before the game starts, so you do not miss it. If you are still late, you can watch but you will not be able to participate.

Not ready

On Android, the app is still in beta or has not been released so expect some bugs. In addition, as we've said, opening such apps to Android is a real test because this is actually when the masses manage it. I would expect some server issues if there were no other bugs. Remember what happened to Pokemon Go? HQ trivia will face more problems because it needs to stream live video to hundreds of thousands of users if not a million at least at the beginning.

On New Year's Day, once available on Android, has not been released, for more than a day, the app holds 750,000 live users. As a result, the app is loaded with a host that stands there with a tuxedo, providing answers to questions that are not even displayed on the user's screen. There have been a few hiccups in the last few months as well. If the app takes off, one can only estimate this number to increase tenfold.

HQ Trivia has been founded by Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll, who created a popular short video sharing service called Vine. So they have some experience dealing with video. They sell Vine to Twitter which eventually turns it off, if you do not realize it. While there's no word of when users can expect a full Android launch, you can go ahead and try the unreleased Trivia HQ app on Android now.

The game show is based on the usual question and answer format depending on the host that can make or break it. Creating a set of 12 questions to ask twice a day is not difficult but it's hard to find a host that can keep people engaged. Such hosts must be good with scripted material and should also be able to improvise on the occasions that demand it.

HQ has several hosts but mostly you will find Scott Rogowsky who hosted the game. Probably why he's also in most promotional materials. Host Scott Rogowsky is a relatively unknown comedian. This could be a moment of fame if HQ really can take off on Android. His ability to improvise might make him fit (no pun intended) for the game. Other notable hosts were British journalists and TV host Sharon Carpenter who occasionally questioned Rogowsky.

How are you paid?

To get paid you need to create a PayPal account. Once you win $ 20, you can receive your balance in your PayPal account. While getting a PayPal account is easy, making it ready to receive payments, especially from outside sources can be a bit of a hassle depending on where you live. So make sure your account is ready to receive payment.
