QuizUp Now Live on Google Play for Android Devices

One of the games that has completely taken over my 2014 is QuizUp. Previously only available for iOS, the developers have been hard at work for the past four months on an Android version, with it now finally being available on Google Play for all to enjoy. 

QuizUp pits one person against another in a battle of the brains. Players choose topics to play, with each topic containing thousands of different questions. Each round you play consists of six questions, with one double-point bonus question. The more you win in any given topic, the higher ranked you are. If you reach milestone ranks, you earn titles and badges, which you can then show off to your opponents in an attempt to intimidate them.

The game is completely free to download, and the only IAPs currently available are for XP boosters. And no, they’re not necessary at all.

Note: The game does not work with ART, Google’s Android runtime. To be clear, this is not the app’s fault (according to developers), and it’s an issue with ART, which they hope to have figured out in an update to the runtime. Until then, you will need to be using the Dalvik runtime.

Download the game and go stretch that big, beautiful mind of yours!

    Can’t live these days without gravitybox.. so I’m stuck without ART anyway.

  • A.Miller

    So it doesn’t work on the Nexus 5?

    • Pedro

      ART is still an experimental feature that you have to manually switch from Dalvik.
      So it should run just fine on the Nexus 5.

    I say beating anyone on the Droid Life staff should result in part ownership.


      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Lol. Oh i’ll find you.

      Yeah but then you have to beat Tim, he’s like the gym leader of quiz up.

          I am a book of useless information

  • Alex Coldstone Simon

    I challenged you last night Tim to a Family Guy quiz. 🙂

    • I saw it! I have about 100 challenges, so give me some time to get through them all 😛

      • Alex Coldstone Simon

        No big, was just going to say good luck! btw, game is very fun.

      • MetroGnome711

        I just embarrassed myself challenging you to an Android trivia contest. When you get to it, forgive me.

        • Ha! I know the feeling. The first couple Android games I played I got whooped. I felt like an idiot.

  • A.Miller

    I’m really excited!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “QuizUp pits one person against another in a battle of the brains” – Multiplayer over the net?

    • You play another person in real time, yes.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Nice. Might have to check it out then.

      • Buur

        It doesn’t have to be real time though. You can challenge a friend and answer all the questions then they can accept your challenge at their leisure.

        • Yes, you’re correct, but his question was about real time “multiplayer” so I fielded that.
