HQ Trivia is changing in a BIG way.

If you're an avid player of everyone's favourite online trivia game, you're probably going to be psyched at some new features coming to HQ Trivia.

You'll soon be able to search for your friends in the app, keep up with the games they participate in, and see how well they're doing.

With a player base of over a million, there's a good chance you'll be able to locate your IRL friends in the app (unless you're already playing with them in teams!) and flex those competitive muscles.

An HQ spokesperson told Techcrunch this new update “forms the basis of a variety of new features that HQ will be rolling out soon, leveraging friends’ connections.”

This could signal even more "social network" adjacent features that would add a completely new layer to the HQ Trivia experience. Now, if this new HQ social network comes with some free lives, we're going to be officially HOOKED.
