I just checked and I have them as well. It seems Duolingo has released Achievements for all users! Perhaps we'll get an announcement in the coming hours or days.

How exciting! I have had Achievements on my Android device for a while now - it's great to see them on the website too.

J'amerai beaucoup pouvoir parler le Français tellement bien que vous parlez l'Anglais.

They had an A/B test in the middle of last year for Android so I’m guessing they’re keeping the feature.

Thank you DragonPolyglot. I've never used Duolingo on Android that's why I didn't know.

Hi Eriu_1, Achievement badges have been A/B tested for some Android users from about 8 months ago. The rest of us who weren't in that group had no access to it. That is until now. So it is not new for some people, but yes to those who were not in the test group.

Hello, thank you for your reply. I think it's a motivation, a great idea for all users.

Yeah, got that too. And there's also something that keeps appearing in the drop-down next to my name on the discussions page called 'Quiz History' but when I click on it gives me an Error 404?? they must be working on something else.

Did you by any chance take the Progress Quiz? Because when I did, the Quiz History appeared on my menu.

That's just left over from when they had progress quizzes. I read that the forums aren't running on the updated site design, so old elements like that appear.

Yes, that's what they do now instead of focusing on useful updates.

Why do people always whine about everything that isn't directly linked to languages??? "Oh, it's not language related but just meant to motivate people, let's give some completely useless comments about that".

Does this negatively impact you in any kind of way? I don't think so... If you're not negatively impacted by it in any kind of way, why whine? It's just whining for the sake of it.

It's useful in terms of user retention.

Oui, c'est une nouvelle partie du profil et avant c'était seulement pour les utilisateurs de l'application Android. J'espère que tu me comprends. ^^;
