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.

Thanks OmegaGmaster.

Yes, this is a new feature. Croissant! :D As much French as I speak.

    That's "la baguette".

    What's it like being a stick? XD

    These are my current skill limits in French too :P

    It's not new, it has been on mobile for quite some time already.

    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.

    Merci. Vous parlez bien français aussi !

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


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eriu_1

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/heyfreddy

    Je pense que c'est quelque chose de nouveau.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SaiVeerava

    I got them too.....


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joe148136

    i think it is knew


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GresoTheGropaga

    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.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LasCicatrices

      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. ^^;


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eriu_1

      Merci. Bien sûr que j'ai compris, c'est un sans faute. Vous parlez très bien français :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jellybean3242006

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jouben_4Christ

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/komorebi64

      Oui, it is. I really like it. It gives me a sense of self-completion.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JOAT2B

      I just logged in and got mine! Yay! :D
