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!

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

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:

"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
