New Update With Achievements Not Working

Hey guys!

Did anyone else get the app update with the achievements, only to find out the app doesn't work anymore? Most of the time I start Duolingo, I see the logo, then a white screen for a while, then it shuts off and asks if I want to give feedback for why it shut off. Sometimes I get to see the language tree, but I can't click on the buttons. Once it introduced me the achievement system, then the program froze.

It happens to both my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my LG Aristo. I noticed when I use it on my Amazon Fire, the app works because it doesn't have the achievement update.

Anyways, thankfully I can still open a web browser and do my lessons there. I'm currently waiting for another update to fix my issue.

Anyone else have this issue? And do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

My brother started Duolingo Italian about two months before me last summer [2016]. Recently he'd got to level 21 and 58% and I'd got to level 22 and 63%. Then we both got bumped. Him back to 49%, me to 47% [great when I worked much harder to achieve more]. Just a couple of days ago we got the latest app updates. His achievements appear and work. Mine I don't even have the option to see and therefore don't. We have identical Samsung Galaxy S2 phones, and I keep both bang upto date as I'm the smartphone 'expert', I suppose. Very odd. His settings are identical to mine too! Another experiment.?

I now also have the achievements section and they work. So perhaps I should have been slightly more patient. Thing is, I'm keen to learn and I'll take all the help and incentives I can get. ;)

Are achievements only on Android??

Sorry, I'm not sure if it's just on Android. I'm surprised no one talked about these achievements on the forums yet, so I might be one of the people that Duolingo is testing a new feature on.

It's working on my Nexus 6 running Nougat.

12 of 12 achievements, not very challenging to get them.

Thanks for the heads up Cleeent! So I see it's not affecting every Android phone. A good thing I guess is that I have all the achievements too. :-)

Where can it be found? I stupidly pressed OK when the app told me of its existence, so now I can't figure out where to find it. :))

It took a day after the notification to show up, but on your Android phone, it should be at the second tab (the one with the outline of a person / where you can view your list of friends) :D it's just at the top of that page :)

Does anybody know, what´s wizard and masquerade mean?

And why do I have the traveler full? I´m still in the same timezone.

Traveler full:
The change from wintertime to summertime? I was also surprised.
Masquerade:
Equip an outfit in the shop (Formal Attire or Champagne Tracksuit).
