Intermedia labs, the company behind the HQ Trivia game for iPhones has announced to launch the game for Android users by January 1st. The company has already allowed the pre-registration for the live Trivia game for Android users. This means the users will be notified once the game is available to download. Earlier the company announced to give a surprise to the Android smartphone users by Christmas and then launched the limited beta version of the app. Intermedia Labs is working aggressively on the app to deliver the game to the Android phones on the new years eve.

HQ Trivia is a live gaming platform that was launched for the iPhone in 2017 and the game is hosted by Scott Rogowsky. The game is built by the duo behind the Vine, Rus Yusupov, and Colin Kroll. The app hosts live games at 6 PM ET, every day and at 3 PM on Weekends. In the game, all the participants have to answer a series of 12 multiple choice questions asked by the host. Each question has 3 possible answers and every participant has to choose the right one within 10 seconds. The players with the correct answer within 10 seconds move to the nest question and others get eliminated. There is a prize money for every game which ranges from $1,000 to $2,000. The question which eliminates the maximum number of participants is quoted as the “Savage question” by Scott Rogowsky. The game gives users an opportunity to win real cash just by answering 12 questions.

The company was planning to expand its live gaming platform to the Android users for quite a long time now, but finally launched the beta version for limited users on Christmas. However, Intermedia labs are facing trouble in raising funds after some investor started hesitating in investing due to Kroll’s controversy regarding women harassment. Jeremy Liew, the Lightspeed Ventures partner who is among the Intermedia Labs board members wrote to Recode, “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. 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.”

Against all the odds, the HQ Trivia live still making its way to the Android smartphones with the beginning of 2018. Till January 1 only some of the lucky Android users are able to use the beta version of the app and try to win cash by participating every day.
