Floating "Try Plus" Button on App

Dear Duolingo,

Annoying me with your "Try Plus" button will not make me more likely to try Duolingo Plus. Adding more interesting or valuable features to Duolingo Plus will, however, make me more likely to "Try Plus." You already ask me to pay for Duolingo every day, after every lesson, please don't bother me more about it. You shouldn't have to annoy your users to buy a product so much that it disrupts the use and depreciates your already great, free product.

Here are the most recent ideas for features I've seen in the forums, why not add these to Plus? https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/31207249

Sincerely,

A Committed Learner

I would be a plus member if there were substantial changes to the site.

One change would be that all courses have sound and notes.

I have other suggestions but that is one that many people think needs to be addressed before leaderboards and changing XPs. To DL's credit, some sound was added to Swahili, so that's good.

Yes! I understand that challenges that they face when creating courses, especially since so much of this is volunteer run. If I had more disposable income, I wouldn't mind paying for Plus now/donating money to help add sound and notes. But, in my current financial state, Plus would really need more to it, like having sound and notes for all courses. I think access to free education is really important, but if they keep adding even more annoying pop ups for Plus it's going to make the app not worth using at all.

It seems a lot of people are unhappy with certain issues with the app. I almost always use the web version. I did try another version, but it didn't have all the languages. I guess they are testing multiple features across platforms.

How about ending the disgraceful health feature.

Floating? Like a pop up?

That sounds bad, duolingo had always been very discreet with advertising, small images and no noise or pop ups.

Yep, it just came up today for me. There's a floating button blocking the top corner of the tree, and it hovers there until you click on it and another button to say you don't want Plus.
