The popular app game HQ Trivia will come to Android devices this Christmas after its successful release on iOS devices during the summer.

The free app consists of two live game sessions, one everyday at 9 p.m. EST and another on weekdays at 3 p.m. EST. The live trivia game show also offers cash prizes to winning players.

The game’s Twitter account announced the app was coming to Android mobile devices, just in time for Christmas.

How To Play HQ Trivia

The game makes players feel like they’re on a show like "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," where they can answer trivia questions and win money.

To play the game, iOS users can download the app on the App Store. As of now, people who have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running on iOS 9.0 or later can play the game. The app is intended for players ages 17 and older.

Players can sign up by creating a username and verifying their phone number. Since the game can only be played live and at certain times, the app notifies users to prepare for the upcoming game, if alerts are enabled. When opening the push notification, gamers are taken to a countdown of the game. The HQ Trivia’s Twitter account also sometimes tells users when the game will go live.

The number of players during a live session is displayed on the top-left of the screen, while the bottom of the screen contains a live chat window where users can comment before and during the game.

Before the live HQ Trivia game starts, a host welcomes everyone to the session. During the game, users are asked trivia questions on multiple topics, including history, entertainment, technology and more. The questions get harder as the game progresses. Players must answer the question in 10 seconds, which means people won’t have time to look up the answers online. When a player loses, they’ll be kicked off the game but can still watch the rest of the live session.

At the end of the game, the winners are announced, as well as the prize. The money is cashed out via PayPal. Winning players divide the day’s cash prize (an example of the amount designated a day for users to split is $1,500).
