Just got new skills added to the Hawaiian tree while I was doing my daily practice.

There goes the weekend ;)

Yeah I noticed it too! So glad that the Hawaiian course is having new content added to it! Hope we'll keep getting more! It's one of my favourite courses! I've added the new skills to the duolingo wiki if anyone wants to see what the new skills are. I haven't added all the new words yet but planning on doing so. Just go towards the bottom of the page and you should see the skills that have been released: https://duolingo.fandom.com/wiki/Hawaiian_Skill:Greetings Also if you want to try out the new skills, try making a new account. I've heard that new accounts are more likely to get the new skills and it's what I've noticed with the new Norwegian and Japanese courses. Hope that helps! :-)

Aloha kākou, just a bit of an update: The new skills are indeed in an A/B test right now, and 50% of all users should be seeing them at the time of this post. When Duolingo has determined that this new version of the course results in more engagement/retention (or whatever metrics Duolingo uses to determine if this version is better than the previous one), then it should be released fully to all users.

We appreciate everyone trying out the new skills and giving us feedback, as always! If you aren't seeing the new skills yet, it is possible for you to create a new account and roll the dice to see if you get the new skills. You've got a 50% chance :)

I didn't get any. What is the name of your last skill?

Music.

The new skills: Order food, Habits, Determiner 2, O and A, Home Life, ʻOhana 2, Social, Numbers 2, School, ʻOhana 3, School 2, Sports, and Music.

Except for adding another lesson to the Determiner skill, all the new content is after the Purchases skill - so everything's nice and tidy.

Wow, there’s 30 skills now. I finished the tree when it was new and it had only something like 8?

Yes. There's lots more content, audio on almost everything and out of Beta in less than a year.

Amazing job, Duo contributors!

Indeed! I need to do the course. Hawaiian is the only non-English official language of a state.

I am not seeing the new skills on my computer or my phone. Anyone know how to bring them up?

I've never been part of the test group on an A/B test before, but I'm guessing this is what's going on.

Since this is a relatively small upgrade (and no glitches so far on my end!) hopefully it will be released to everybody else soon... like the new Japanese tree.

My wife has the skills but I don't. I also tried creating a new account but it does not have the new skills.

Two weeks later and still the new tree hasn't opened to me...

I received a reply from Doulingo about a week ago saying the the new skills were only made available to about 50% of the Hawaiian users. They said that I go try a new account but it was hit and miss on whether I would be part of the 50% with the news skills. I tried 3 times with a new account and each time I did not have the new skills. It could be a long time before the new skills are rolled out to everybody. Meanwhile, I am using my wife's account to learn the new skills.
