Any news about a new communication tool for Duolingo?

Did the staff give any updates recently regarding the activity stream, or a new communication tool?

I've not heard anything, QL. But based on what I'm seeing in the discussion forums, folks are starting to see the new web page format: sentence discussions open in their own tab, no "Activity" option in the menu, etc. So things are definitely moving along. I'm anxious to see what they come up with!

I'm anxious (like, worried) to see what they don't come up with, possibly. :-/ Mr. Von Ahn didn't say anything concrete about these "tools" or if they have any communication power, and didn't say anything about "when". (Oh, and I'm talking to a moderator. Sorry!)

Actually, he did, but he was vague :)

we plan to incorporate better tools to communicate with other learners. We understand that social connections are essential, and we plan to expand social features and capabilities as soon as possible.


And heavens, if you can't talk to a mod, who CAN you talk to??

I knooow! But clubs' phrases and emoji are "communication" too, right? Like I "communicate" with you when I send you this: :D Very expressive :-/

I'm still laughing at that second part! :D I meant you were likely well-aware of what I said!

I guess we'll just have to wait, then... I'm also quite anxious about what might happen.

i have no activity so i guess i have the new update. will we get our profile back?

Sadly no! I really want to start talking to my friends again. I am totally hating this update!

I just posted a discussion with a bunch of questions about this update. If you have answers please comment!
