[Suggestion] Custom Day Start

[deactivated user]

    Would it be possible for Duolingo to implement a custom day start time? I have a different app that does this and I find it really useful. Often times I get my daily XP after my day is finished/before I go to sleep and I end up losing my streak because its past 12:00. Setting the reset time to 1 or 2 AM is something I think would be very helpful. Any thoughts?

    I agree! Also it is difficult while traveling. Is there a way we can possibly change the "time zone" of the app and hence allowing us to alter the reset time?

    Why not use a streak freeze for a day?

    For example, if you get no Duolingo practice on Tuesday and have it covered by a streak freeze, then your 1:30 am practice on Wednesday morning counts for Wednesday, your 2:00 am practice the next day on Thursday morning counts for Thursday, your 1:00 am practice on Friday morning counts for Friday, etc. and you won't need those to count for the day it was before midnight. :)

    So it'd be like Snapchat streaks?

    I don't like that to be honest. What if you're deadline is at 6:00 pm. You go somewhere with no device, then suddenly, you get lost, or you check something else out instead.

    I think it's great this way so you have any point during the day to do it.

      It wouldn't be like Snapchat streaks, you just get to change the daily reset time. So instead of the default 12:00 you could make it a different time of day/night.
