I will pay to get rid of health. Really, I am on the verge of quitting this thing. Please give us an option to get rid of health on the app! The crown update really sucks, but even that I could get behind if we could lose the health feature. Damn, I am really frustrated with this game! I used to look forward to it, now it is just torture. And, I do understand that I can use the main page without health, but that is not nearly as convenient!

Use Duolingo's web version on your phone/tablet (, because it .......

  • does not have the punishing "Health" system and gems

  • will work in the newest version of the Chrome or Firefox browser on your phone or tablet, if you have rather good Wifi (or LTE/4G with an Internet bundle)

For the best typing experience:

  • set the browser to mobile mode
  • use the phone in portrait mode

Do you work for Duolingo?

Moderators are volunteers, not Duolingo employees.

Try the DuoLingo Android app on an Android emulator (KOPlayer, Bluestacks, NOX, Memu, etc.).

If you are lucky you won't have Health (it may be account associated, but chances are good for "no health", especially if you use an older Android version like V3.60. as others have already pointed out).

I am barely holding onto my streak, but it really feels like a chore. Duo totally sucks now.
