How do I turn off the timed practice?

I never turned on timed practice, and there's no way to turn it off. It's ruining my practices and Duolingo experience. Please help!

How do I install this please, it will not install for me. Do I need to delete the app first?

Yes. Don't worry, your streak, etc. is all on your account.

The "timed practice" in the Android app unfortunately does not have the features of the "timed practice" in the web version.

  • you cannot choose between normal speed and timed practice, when you want to do the general strengthening.
  • and you don't get extra time, when you gave a right answer.

Workaround
for cancelling the "one-minute" against-the-clock-speed-test" in the Android app.

  • don't click on the "blue-button" practice
  • click on an individual skill
  • click on "Weakest words"

  • When my tree is gold I like to use the "general strengthening" in normal speed to prevent my tree from "ungilding". That is impossible now.

In the "Google play store" you can give a feedback for this unwelcome feature.

I left feedback and I dont like this work around because in Strengthen your Skills it was like a review, you didnt know what chapter and so it made you think more, if you didmt "know" you were doing present perfect for instance it really tested you more. I fid leave feedback as you suggested though, thanks

I left feedback in the playstore, I hope anyone that uses this app and does not like the removal of this feature will do the same!

Yeah I had to downgrade and I left feedback. This "feature" does nothing to help me learn.

Does anyone know how to get BACK to the blue timer button? I had it before, and I really liked it. I've tried installing version 3.50.2, but it now has the barbell for me. Anyone know the trick?

New version (3.51.x) just came out, the blue button was a barbell, but still only gave me timed exercises. Have reverted back to 3.49.4 again.
