Introducing Duolingo Push!

The moment you've all been waiting for...

Introducing Duolingo Push! We're taking notifications out of your phone and into the real world. Yup: Duo the Owl will literally show up to remind you to practice so you never miss a lesson.

Learn more about Duolingo Push here

Tweet is here

Let's learn for real.

Posted April 1, 2019 ;)

Update Apr. 2, 2019

Thanks for the laughs, everyone! Duo might not have the bandwidth to come visit you in person to remind you to practice your language (yet), but you can always adjust your reminders here and equip your streak freeze here, so you can stay on top of your game and keep that streak going. Oh, and while we're on the subject of April Fool's announcements... Finnish, man. That's no joke. :)

Duo came to my house last Wednesday. Jumped straight out of my bedroom window, and a second Duolingo owl slammed my door open, knocking it down. I was forced to go on Duolingo for 6 hours since I accidentally lost my streak. Was I allowed taking a break? Of course not. Both Duos just stared at me, sitting there with a big smirk on their faces. After 6 hours, I was finally allowed to be free from the dark closet of my bedroom. After this, I needed a security camera. If this happened again, oh, it would of gotton worse! (I Hope you enjoyed my story... I suggest not using this feature, unless you want 2 Duos bursting through your room.. Or anywhere! I thought he was going to follow me forever, and never leave!)

(This was a fun joke to write. XD) Weird, but eh. Happy April Fools Day! Please don't take this seriously. :)

There have been times in the past when I heard a living owl hoot at night when I was on Duolingo. This is not an April fool's joke. An owl is living in a tree right behind my house.

Guys, it really works! It happened to me yesterday, I was completely neglecting my streak when suddenly Duo showed up and confiscated the book I was reading until I met my daily XP goal. (I must have got passive aggressive Duo) I am so relieved to know Duo is watching out for the community to make sure nobody loses their streak. I think it is definitely worth the money and cannot recommend this more.

April 1, 2019

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

It works great, but I found Duo a bit too intrusive. If he would not show up anywhere you are or just keep his distance and maybe just flap his wings or throw some pebbels at you to get your attention... No, he sneaks right up on you.

But I found the solution. I started wearing a Duo suit myself. So when the real Duo sees me, he assumes that I have already taken care of the forgetful learner and just moves on. Since you can never be too sure at exactly what moment he'll show up, I have to wear it every evening as the deadline comes closer. It's OK right now, but I'm not sure what I will during the hot summer months.

My dog was barking before and I wasn't sure why. He wouldn't stop after a few minutes, which was very strange (he normally stops after 5 or so barks). I decided to go and check, and what do you know? Duo was there! He made me finish my Swedish lesson this morning. He really gave me a fright, especially since I hadn't heard about this until now! At least now I wont be losing my streak, but I hope my dog gets used to him at some point. I don't think the neighbours will appreciate his barking.

April 1, 2019

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

Teach your dog Swedish!

April 1, 2019

Good idea actually, but then again I might get two Duos at my house if he forgets about his streak...

April 1, 2019

Hmm... good point.... at that point you would definitely need a security system.

The website push.duolingo.com and the official Duolingo tweet about push.duolingo.com neglected to mention that

youtube: "Introducting Duolingo Push" has closed captions in:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese Simpflied
  • English
  • French
  • Portugese
  • Spanish

It's time to practice the subjunctive in Spanish.

Aquí en Duolingo sabemos que para aprender un idioma lo mejor es practicar todos los días.

Es por eso que Duolingo envía notificaciones útiles a los usuarios

para recordarles que practiquen, practiquen, practiquen, pero, para algunos usuarios,

hemos descubierto que eso no es lo suficientemente efectivo.

Es por eso que estamos emocionados de lanzar

What happens if you don’t do the lessons...?

Do you actually get pushed? O_o

(Btw the video is funny).

April 1, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lightning_11

So does the owl literally show up to your work and tell you to do your language learning?

Edit: I bet this is an Aprill fools joke...

April 1, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Polygl-not

Yes, of course, Duo will find you wherever. I'm not sure how the technology works exactly, but I'd guess there's some sort of tracker that gets implanted into your phone's software that allows Duo to hunt you down (in the name of building responsible practices, of course).

I got early access to Push and that's how I've kept my streak for so long - sometimes Duo shows up as I'm walking home, sometimes he knocks on my window just before midnight, one time he even walked into my Spanish classroom. It's a bit disconcerting at first but I can confirm that it really works

April 1, 2019

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

Have you remembered to take your Spanish lessons?

April 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Polygl-not

I haven't done Spanish on Duolingo in a while, I'm taking classes at my school and the real-life course has passed Duolingo's capabilities. But I've been progressing steadily with Japanese (thanks to this new Push feature!)
