HQ Trivia, a trivia app which has proved to be a big hit on iOS, is finally available on Android. The developers responsible for the app have been working on bringing it to Android for a while, and it’s now finally available to all. Unfortunately it is still in beta at the moment though.
For the uninitiated, HQ Trivia is a free trivia app which has players answering a series of multiple choice questions. If you answer incorrectly you’re knocked out, but anyone able to answer all 12 questions correctly gets to share in the prize money. And, unlike Bitcoin, it’s real money too.
Play HQ Trivia on Android Early
HQ Trivia debuted on iOS and proved to be an immediate hit. Leaving Android users wondering when they would get their hands on the app. Now, after weeks of hard work behind the scenes, the developers of HQ Trivia have finally released the (in beta) app on the Google Play Store.

Intermedia Labs launched the Android version on New Year’s Eve. And there’s now set to be a live game every day at 9pm EST and weekdays at 3pm EST. There was $18,000 up for grabs in the New Year’s Eve game, but most days the prize money is significantly less than that. For now.
It’s the Taking Part That Counts
It’s important to note that HQ Trivia is currently only available under “Early Access“. And as the app’s page on the Google Play Store makes clear, this means it “may be unstable”. Still, if you’re willing to take a chance on an app that’s still in development you could earn a few extra bucks.
