Tips & Notes on Android

This is probably old news to many of you, but...

I was making a mistake by not updating my Android app for my phone. I had an old version that did not show the tips and notes.

I updated it, and now I can see and read the tips and notes. Can't believe I did not know this.

Just wanted to let all Android users know that if you are not seeing the tips and notes, it may be because your app has not been updated.

Thank you!! If I wouldn't read this I probably wouldn't notice the change.

P. S. Duolingo really can make great changes. In addition to the appearance of the tips and notes Android users now can change the word bank to keyboard at any moment!

Thanks for answering the question. I like the new app on my phone, but I have noticed that I do not have the change word bank option.

I think this is because different cell phone carriers program their apps differently.

Probably it's just a A/B test. It's a pity that part of the users doesn't have the update... :(

Thanks, but I never let any app auto update itself. Because many apps do some nefarious things to your phone without you knowing it.

I'm too old to trust auto update, LOL. But then again I miss all the cool new features.

Where exactly are the tips and notes in the app?

Tips and notes are in the bulb that you see when you click on a skill.
