You kinda have to remake them for each new platform. Android development can be complicated, not to mention the fact that you have to make sure it works for all the web browsers.

My point was that just because you've made for one platform doesn't mean you can't just plop it down on a different platform.

I actually have a question about how much alpha testing you can take on at once. I am already a Japanese course alpha tester. Does this imply that I cannot sign up for the alpha for English bots, or is there no limit as to how much you can alpha test at once?

And if you are not an iOS user, you can write to people in a language you are learning on a chat on YouTube

Just go on YouTube, write your request, than choose "Filters", than "Live", the chat will be there at the right side of the screen.

For example: Say "Hello" to the world =)

I would love to sign up, however I would like to know about how long "a few minutes" is? It wouldn't be half an hour, would it? I am pretty busy with schoolwork, sports, and other activities - but I always have time for Duo to do a lesson of a skill or two.

Thanks for all help!!! :-)

Why do all the beta features seem to be on IOS? IOS devices are much much harder to get than a cheap Android phone or a cheap PC, and PCs are even available at many libraries...

Because most users use smartphones and android phones have a lot of hardware and software differences in comparison to apple. apple is more homogenous so its easy to establish apps on that platform first.

I signed up. Hopefully bots spread to more languages and more platforms soon. I haven't had the chance to speak with one yet, but if made correctly they sound like an awesome way to practice.

All you need is an iOS device Cool! Sign me up. Only one small problem.... I don't have an iOS device. Why do you keep pushing those dumb bots when only a small percentage of users can even take advantage of them? I mean that's what we are all about here right? If it's not used by everyone we get rid of it.

If they used desktop, it could be used on pretty much any device. If it was Android, there are $10 Android phones. But no... they had to chose the most expensive and closed platform there is...

The best answer: practice a lot. You can also wage lingot bets, where you put in five and get back ten if you practice every day that week.

Will you need to be far enough in another [language] to English course to use these bots? I am a native speaker of English, but the only other language I speak is Bengali and so far there's no Bengali to English course. Since I know that the bots are completely in the foreign language, how will I be able to access them?
