What is this ß thing?
"ß" is not a "B" or "β" (beta)!
"ß" is used after long vowels and diphthongs (ai/eu/au/äu), and "ss" is used after short vowels.
In order to to type the "ß" character on a touch device, press and hold the "s" key and select "ß".
If this doesn't work, go to your keyboard settings on your device and enable the German keyboard.
On the website version of Duolingo, you can use the on-screen button below the box where you're supposed to write your answer
Alternatively, you can type "ss".
