Received an email about Japanese being available, but can't access it; help, please

I just received an email from Duo saying "Japanese is here!" with a link embedded. I selected the link from my phone, but it doesn't show anything Japanese--not a direct link to the tree, nor showing it in the 'select languages' dropdown. I tried looking at it from my computer, but it says available for mobile platforms. Can anyone help, please?

It is available for Ios and Android only, and from English as a base language.

Yes, that's what I said, but I also said that I can't access it or even find it on my phone even though I have the link. The link just sends me to the last place I was in Duo

Afaik, all Android users should have received the update containing the Japanese course since two weeks ago (when the week-long gradual rollout sounded like it had completed).

What is your installed Duolingo app's version number?

You should be able to find it in Android settings → apps → all, and then click Duolingo.

The up-to-date version is 3.50.2. But I think as long as it's version 3.49 or higher, then it should have the Japanese course. ^^

That was it! Thanks!! Out of curiosity, how are you doing Japanese on computer?

I could not get Japanese on 4.0 but got it on 4.4, so the limit seems to be somewhere in between these.
