What are these new features?
I recently logged in at Duolingo and found all of those achievement waiting there for me. Is it a new feature that Duolingo just unveiled? I hope it will motivate me and others to be more committed to daily practice. (Hint to my brother). But I personally think profiles look worse with them.
They had it for a while and were testing them, now everyone has them. I think it’s to make the experience more enjoyable and encourage others.
I don't have them yet, and I'm glad, because my friend has them and I personally think it looks worse with them.
They were available on the app version for quite a while but only now have they decided to bring it to the PC version.
I like them, the little reward systems make me feel like I'm really doing something, with other learning apps sometimes i'd work for years and not really feel like i was getting anywhere duolingo does a good job of saying "look how hard you're working!" and "look how far you've gotten!".
But I personally think profiles look worse with them.
It's just displayed too big in my opinion.
Ideally they'd also add something like 3 "slots" beneath the profile pictures of people in which they can place badges corresponding to having completed a tree, an achievement, Duolingo Plus badge, etc...
