I didn't see another thread on this yet. Forgive me if it's been covered. Let me know and I'll delete this.

I just noticed a timed practice in the Android app. It's simply a 60 second timer for the usual exercises. You don't get more time for getting correct answers, which makes it next to useless for me. I can only get 6 or 7 correct answers in that time.

Has anyone else gotten this update?

There are a number of discussions about the forced timed practice introduced post version 3.49.4. That seems to have been eliminated, but now today I saw (having upgraded again to 3.51.2) a Sunday practice that really wasn't too bad. It wasn't forced. I prefer the website's timed version, but since it was optimal, I can live with it.

Last wednesday I had the opportunity to do this 60 second test (a "wednesday test" in addition to the normal strengthening button which is still available). After that day I wasn't (yet) offered this test again. Maybe I'll see it on wednesday. I'm guessing there is a lot of A/B testing going on... (I currently have 3.51.2)

I've had the Wednesday Challenge twice now. Timed practice doesn't seem to happen any other day.
