TikTok trivia games are very popular nowadays, mainly thanks to the social media platform's incredible success, and here is a guide on how to play them!

TikTok is a mobile app that allows its users to create short videos and publish them to interact with each other. Since its release, the social media platform has gained a huge amount of user base, and it continues to attract more people. Lastly, TikTok announced its trivia feature a while ago, and the challenge started on February 22, 2023. If you are curious about it and want to know how to play TikTok trivia, you are surely reading the right article. Let's start with its explanation and give a brief definition!

TikTok Trivia: Explanation

TikTok trivia is the newest feature the platform offers for US users. On February 16, the company shared a press release and announced its new project with the slogan: "Real Brains. Real Rewards." The new event takes place between February 22 and February 26. Two live sessions will be held in the first three days each, and the famous TikTok creator James Henry will be the host. All the live sessions will be held on the official TikTok account, and the users will challenge in the TikTok trivia event to win real money. Speaking of money, the event will feature a $500k prize pool, and you can book a share of it if you perform better than the majority!

The first session begins at 8 pm ET and will include 12 questions, and the winners will win a prize of $30k. Moreover, the second session, which starts at 9 pm ET, will give $70k to the winners. Apart from the regular format, TikTok trivia will also include "Survival Rounds," in which the difficulty increases continuously. Survival rounds will be at the very end of the challenge, on February 25 and 26, and the winners will split a prize of $100k. TikTok trivia will also be useful for other creators. After every live session, the platform will suggest different creators and help them get recognized by the users.

TikTok trivia will be presented by Lionsgate and John Wick Chapter 4. There will be fun surprises and integrations from Lionsgate and John Wick Chapter 4 throughout the event. There might be multiple questions about the movie, which will go out on March 24. Only US users who are over 18 years of age are allowed to participate in the event.

How to play?

There are two different ways that can be used to play TikTok trivia. The platform has brought a widget to everyone's For You Feed specifically about the trivia event. You could either tap on it and follow the instructions that are given, or you could just track the live session times and join the event from the official page of TikTok. Remember that there are two live sessions each day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each session will take an hour, and while the first one starts at 8 pm ET, the second will kick off at 9 pm ET.


James Henry, the host, shared a video explaining the rules of TikTok trivia. As mentioned, there are 12 questions in each session, and all the players must answer them correctly before the countdown ends. A set of multiple-choice options will be given to users, and they are required to choose the correct answer before time runs out. These questions include sports, music, beauty, lifestyle, and John Wick-related.

Survival Rounds have a quite different format from the regular TikTok trivia. There won't be a specific number of questions, and there is no limit. The questions will continually get harder, and the last group will take home a prize of $100k, divided equally.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
