Why doesn't Swahili have a microphone / speaking option?

My friend is doing German and she is able to speak into the app, but with my Swahili I am not given the option.

I started Swahili too but once I realized that it didn't have the mic or a voice to guide pronunciation, I dropped it.

They updated it and they do have a voice guide now, so we can hear how it's pronounced we just can't say it back to them

currently the audio is recorded by the contributors, I don't think they have the software to read audio input in Swahili
