Live Photo Competition Apps

HQ Trivia Launched the HQX Live Platform Focused on Visual Creativity

— January 22, 2020 — Tech
HQ Trivia, the live app-based mobile game show that lets users win money by correctly answering a series of questions, recently expanded its portfolio with the launch of HQX Live. In a similar fashion to the company's original model, users must submit their responses live but instead of clicking the right answer, they must submit a photo.

HQX Live photo competition is focused on visual creativity, with questions like "Best Baby Yoda Impression." Players then have 35 seconds to take and submit a photo and viewers then have 60 seconds to vote by swiping left or right. The top six players at the end of the challenge compete in the final where one is declared the winner. Unlike the original HQ Trivia, players won't win money, but instead virtual coins, which can be used in HQ's other games for a chance to win cash.
