What was the big announcement hyped last week?

Last week, the Duo team told us to get ready to learn some new characters.

What was this announcement? I haven't seen anything as of yet about it!

P.S This is thecupcakefarmer on my Alpha account

Ah, I see. So nothing we weren't already aware of.

Well, at least it kinda cements next month as the release date. They wouldn't announce it on Twitter if they felt like it would be delayed.

Well... sort of. They did do a "coming soon" for Korean over a year ago, and I believe something similar for Yiddish even further in the past.

Not that I doubt the release that much. Just saying it's not an automatic certainty.

True, but they gave a specific time period (one month from now) rather than a vague "coming soon."

Are you talking about duolingo plus? Or the Japanese Course Bug? Or the removal of the activity stream? Or the announcement about a faster website? Or the announcement that duolingo is hiring?

It has to be "Duolingo stories", found here on the jobs page:

https://jobs.lever.co/duolingo/66e7ee19-cc43-4203-9d7f-358a79b14386

"Freelance Writer for Duolingo Stories
A creative storyteller to create compelling and engaging stories for Duolingo."

Probably a new thing or new product ;)

I think that those writers are for the Bots feature available on iOS

Maybe, but there is also a specific job offer for bot writers:

That's why I think this might be something different.

That is a good point, but the 'big hyped up announcement from last week' is definitely the upcoming Japanese course. :)
