Sending Messages to Friends on Duolingo??

I have not been on Duolingo for a while, and now I can't send messages to friends? What happened?

November 14, 2017



It was discontinued. Here's the announcement from Luis about six months ago: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22226909

It has a lot of comments, so it takes forever to load. You might want to right-click, open in new tab.

P.S. - welcome back :-)


When I click on the link, it says the page doesn't exist.

        It was causing glitches.


        As the others said, the activity was removed some time ago. The worst thing about it was that it was done without any warning so we had no time to exchange some contact information with our friends. It is not known when, or even if, some form of communication on Duolingo will be again available.


        They for some reason completely ruined the social aspect that once made this site so awesome. I have no idea why....The site is still great.. but these decisions greatly reduced the effectiveness :/


        I wish we had it cause I did the same and returned in June and it would be helpful to meet new people around the world and practice languages with them! I know two native speakers so I can practice a little with Swedish but I wish I had more
