As part of the lead up to its Android release, headquarters is offering a limited beta in the U.S.
You should now be able to install the HQ Trivia beta when you go to its Google Play page on your Android device. At the beginning of this month, they announced HQ Trivia would get an Android version. The live trivia game only available for iPhone (Android support coming January 1, 2018) offers up real cash prizes, for the hundreds of thousands of players who join in every day at 12PM PST/3PM EST. By "ALL", the devs were apparently not only referring to Android users in Canada, but everyone who owns devices running the Android OS. Or destroy it. The odd mix of Jeopardy, mobile games, and money has made HQ Trivia the talk of the mobile town. Users have ten seconds per-question to select an answer, so that they can't quickly be looked up, and if they correctly guess all 12 they will win or split a $2,000 cash prize (recently increased from $1,000, though on weekends, bonus rounds can offer much larger pots) with the other winners.
The popular app HQ Trivia hit a new record on Christmas day as 730,000 people logged on simultaneously at 9 p.m.More news: Some Disney World resorts change 'Do Not Disturb' signs
For scale: It's also more people than live in Seattle. Each day there are multiple trivia games, hosted by an actual human being. For instance, British on-air personality Sharon Carpenter serves as the quiz master every now and then. The app was founded by Vine makers Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll. The method we'll be using requires a virtual private network to spoof your location and takes a decent amount of work, but it's the only option for now. "We all grew up watching "Jeopardy" and 'Wheel of Fortune.' That's our basis for this kind of stuff".
Of course, if you'd rather just wait for the official release you can pre-register now in Google Play so you know as soon as the app arrives.
There's almost double the number of Android smartphones in the United States as Apple ones, which means the floodgates of headquarters hell are about to open by January 1st.
