Question for Android and iPhone users

Just wondering is it just my phone but my cousin and I were on duolingo and he asked me to help him with one part of his lesson but to my surprise it was for him to pronounce the word/sentence and he said he gets those in every lesson an I've never got that he's learning Spanish on a iPhone an I'm learning Portuguese on a Galaxy S4 just wondering why I don't get that

it would really help if you used '.' and ',' to make your post more readable. I have an iPhone, but most likely the difference is just that in your settings, you have unchecked the symbol for speaker or microphone or something.

You may want to move this to Troubleshooting (edit, change post to: to troubleshooting).

To make sure the question is clear, you are not hearing the sentence pronounced when given a Portuguese sentence? Do you hear any other sounds like sound effects?

Could it be a setting in your phone itself that is preventing audio?

I can hear everything and everything works it's just the part where I have to say the word/sentence I don't get that on my phone at all

Then I would definitely move this to Troubleshooting. It seems that you are doing everything right, so maybe someone over there can give you more info.
