Anyone know how to meet German friends online?

I am learning German through duolingo. I've heard that meeting new friends who know that language you are learning can make you improve a lot. However I do not have any ways to meet a German friend @@ Any suggestions?

Certain platforms like HelloTalk and Discord are good. Try and find some good communities where you can speak to Germans.

you could use the app hellotalk if you have a phone and if not you could use the community on italki

You can also meet pen pals on penpalworld, but be cautious: I saw a guy who claimed to be 20 but was looking for girls only under 17... don't pick out pen pals like that. Basic Internet safety. That guy aside, I have a really good friend from that website. He's a bit of a language person himself. Just look for people you share interests with.
