Where have bots gone?

Since the arrival of Crown, the bots have disappeared. How do I get them back? These have been key learning tool for me.

I agree! I was just beginning to feel comfortable speaking aloud. I need my bots!

I'm really disappointed in the removal of the bots. It's a nice way to practice and gain conversation skills without having to do a lesson. Bring back the bots!!

I miss bots terribly, but just found "stories" in the online app under Labs. They are somewhat similar. Check it out.

Yeah, the stories was originally just available on PCs, and they are really great! I just discovered them a few weeks ago, but it doesn't quite allow for a conversation simulation. It's more of the same lesson type feel with Q&A and a very small vocab portion. It's good for listening comprehension though. I'd still like the bots back

Thanks for the tip Janet149968. At first sight it doesn’t seem to give the same chance to construct your own response, which I think was a key part of the learning - and confidence- we got from using Bots (especially for beginners). Perhaps I’ll learn to love stories!

Hi, this is really a "Troubleshooting" issue.
