Hi there, There are two Duolingo users in the house and we both login separately on the same PC. However each of us has a slightly different layout. My friend sees the streaks of all her friends on PC whereas I can't see the streaks for any of mine. Has anyone experienced it and if so how can I get the same view since we use the same PC?

Also is there a way to update duolingo versions on PC?

Thanks guys! :)

Your friend is part of the A/B test for achievements, which apparently does not show streak or the block button. You cannot control what test side you are part of, sadly.

I was gonna say that, but you'd already explained it perfectly

Thanks for taking the time to explain. Although I've been a user for some time now I have mostly concentrated on the language learning/practice aspect hence am quite the novice when it comes to Duolingo functionalities/tools. When you say 'part of the A/B test for achievements' - what does this mean? Is every user either on the A or B side... and is there only A/B test for achievements or other test groups too? Do they have other major differences? Just a little confused on how this works I guess.

They have dozens of AB tests going on all the time to test various functionality. Personally, I think it degrades the consistency of the learning experience.
