Mobile app questions

Will the mobile app get any improvements in terms of difficulty? I mean, it's way too easy, unlike the desktop version.

Duolingo's web version works fine in the browser of a mobile phone So there is no need to make the App more difficult.

The main problem is that you cannot access the invaluable discussion section for each sentence on the mobile version of the main app.

You are right.
But I use both the Android App and the web version on my phone and tablet.
The App for the first stage of learning a language. And the web version for the grammar "Tips and notes" and the strenghtening of languages which are too easy in the App.

You can also do like I did and install an older version of the app. I have Duolingo version 3.15.1 installed on my phone and I'm not letting it go.

For safety reasons I don't like using very old versions of an App.
The only thing I hate in the recent versions of the Android App is the annoying owl.

Do you mean the lessons are different?

The App and the web version have the same words, sentences and grammar. But in the App you mostly click on predefined words and in the web version you mostly have to know and write down all the words and grammar.

In the last few years both have become a bit easier, because the Duolingo staff had decided to let us translate from foreign language into native language more often. The advantage is that you can use the "reverse tree", the course "foreign language to native language", for translating a lot into the foreign language.
So called "A/B tests" by Duolingo have shown, that this has lead to better learning results. Many people like this feature very much. Me too.
