- HQ Trivia, the free-to-play iOS quiz app, is set to launch on Android on January 1
- The app live-streams a 12-question quiz twice per day, offering a prize of up to $2,000 to those who get all answers correct
- You can pre-register for the app at Google Play now, or get involved in the open beta if you live in Canada
HQ Trivia has taken the App Store by storm. The free-to-play quiz app, which offers real money prizes, has been a hit since launching on iOS in October, but it has yet to appear on Android. According to a tweet posted yesterday (via Android Central), that’s soon going to change.
The official HQ Trivia Twitter account tweeted that it had started a “limited” beta for the app on Android on December 25, but that it was aiming to have the full launch ready in the US by January 1 (it’s only available in North America for the moment).
The app, developed by Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll — the co-founders of Vine, has taken off thanks to its cash prize potential and straightforward premise. Twice per day (at 6pm and 12pm PT) HQ Trivia live streams twelve multiple-choice questions for its users to answer. Users have ten seconds per-question (so that they can’t quickly be looked up) to answer and if they guess them all correct and they will win or split a $2,000 prize (recently increased from $1,000) with the other winners. It’s getting them all right that’s the tricky part.
Android update: we’re in limited beta as of Christmas Day & are working quickly on patches, so we can continue to roll it out to more testers throughout the week. Our goal is to make it available to ALL by Jan. 1.

The app is already available for pre-registration to those in the US, but Android users in Canda are in an even better position — they can already install the open beta and get playing.
