Is it possible to remove the owl who cheers you on continuously from exercise to exercise in the app when you answer correctly or is that a permanent part?

November 16, 2017



If you mean inside the exercise, I think it is not possible


In the Android App, you can remove that owl

  1. Tap the three dots on the top right of your screen and select "settings."
  2. Scroll down to "GENERAL - Motivating messages" and tap the button to change it from blue to gray.


Strange.... In my Android app I only have "GENERAL - Sound effects".


Probably, your user account is in a so-called A/B test of Duolingo's staff.


  1. Try Duolingo's web version (www.duolingo.com) in the browser of your Android phone.

  2. Write a complaint to the Duolingo Android team:
    . go to the home page of the Android App
    . tap on the three dots in the upper right corner of the page
    . tap on "Feedback"
    . follow the instructions on the screen to write your complaint.

Please, tell us your experiences:
Is "using the web version in the browser of your phone" an acceptable workaround?


It's only possible on the Android app, from what I've heard.


Hi Ichthus731,
