We need a way to be able to totally mute the mobile apps.

If I'm using my phone to practice with Duolingo it's likely because I'm either on a bus or similarly waiting on something, and probably listening to music since I get anxious otherwise. Now I've turned off all of the options for speaking and listening exercises in this case, I do those on my laptop, but still the app will quiet my music so it can read out something that I have already read, and usually it garbles it anyway unless you tell it to go slowly.

Unless you can mute the app entirely, I just cannot use it.

People have been asking for a full-app mute function for years, but they haven't responded nor added the feature. It's a shame, without complete mute the app is completely worthless to me too.

Yes, it is a problem.

The app should stop making sounds when the user turns the phone to mute.

That seems what every normal user would want, no?

yeah tried listening music+doing duolingo on the phone today and it's impossible as the app keeps interrupting the music

Totally different. It reads out the sentence on the reading and translating ones, and it force silences music while it plays.
