Connect with your friends with HQ Trivia social features

Now that HQ Trivia is trying to get sponsorship deals with Nike and Warner Bros, it's important to have a solid user base and to keep it growing. But for the longest time that was true; until now, anyway. From there, friends will be able to see each others' performance and keep track of factors such as games played, wins, and high scores, as seen in the screenshots above.

Friends with headquarters will be made available for users in the United Kingdom starting today, and it'll expand to the United States "soon". No word whether the USA rollout will also include Canada, but we'll find out soon enough. You will now be able to have "Friends on HQ", a feature that detects which of your friends and family are also playing the game. Most Freemium bottlenecks occur when players get impatient and waiting ... One could extrapolate developing your own HQ Trivia-style game to be played only by your friends, or sharing photos in the app of your disappointed face when you get knocked out of a game.

This new social aspect to the quiz game is just the beginning.

The startup's fast popularity has it scrambling to monetize the app and its user base. Today, HQ is launching a new feature called "Friends on HQ", which will roll out to United Kingdom users for today's game, with a US launch to follow "soon after", the company says. This is the largest sum of money the live 12-question smartphone trivia game has offered in a single match. Johnson is joining headquarters trivia host Scott Rogowsky to give away the game show app's largest prize yet: $300,000. Winnings are automatically deposited into your PayPal account.
