HQ Trivia is coming soon to Android, and it is enabling the Android users to pre-register for the live-streamed trivia game built by the creators of Vine, Rus Yusupov, and Colin Kroll. Pre-registering indicates you’ll get informed the moment HQ Trivia is ready for download.
HQ Trivia is coming soon to Android; How Will It Be?
HQ, which started up pre-registration on December 24; had earlier sold its Android app as being ready “this Christmas.” To me, that implies it was assumed to be ready by Christmas. But evidently, that’s not what HQ Trivia determined. Earlier this month, the startup tweeted it’ll have “a nice little stocking stuffer coming your way” for those on Android devices. This certainly means HQ Trivia is coming soon to Android. We have reached out to HQ and will update this story if we hear back.
A bit About HQ:
HQ hosts live games every day at 6 pm PT as well as every weekday at 12 pm PT. The game is moderately simple. It asks you 12 multiple-choice questions, and if you get all of them correct, you gain or split a predestined amount of money. Just yesterday, HQ raised the minimum price from $1,000 to $2,000.

Intermedia Labs, the company behind HQ, is reportedly seeking to boost between $15 million and $20 million at a post-money appraisal up to $100 million. However, there is also some reported delay from inherent investors due to stories of Kroll’s behavior toward women.
Lightspeed Ventures Partner Jeremy Liew; who lies on the board of Intermedia Labs, admitted hearing some concern from investors considering Kroll’s behavior. In a comment to Recode, Liew said some firms were not going to finance because of stories of potential sexual harassment.
“So in my capacity as a board member, I conducted an investigation to find out what actually happened. I spoke to about a dozen current and former Twitter execs,” he wrote. “The investigation was exhaustive and included the most knowledgeable primary sources. I found a good deal of negative sentiment about Colin and the Vine team and some discomfort with his behavior, but I did not find evidence that warrants his removal from the company.”
