Arabic typing?

Maybe this is a dumb question and I'm doing something wrong, but is there a reason I can not longer type answers in Arabic? Duo Lingo doesn't seem to provide the option to type any answer in Arabic anymore although it still allows me to type in English (when translating from Arabic).

I know it existed at some point in the last month, I used it a lot. Was it gotten rid of?

I guess you have the Word Bank equipped in the lessons. Do you have Keyboard written in the bottom of your screen?

GL! :D

I looked a few times, and it's not there at all...which is depressing because learning to type the language was a big plus

It is still there, at least in the browser version of Duolingo. Maybe it's gone from the app - can't help there.

If you are on mobile, either Android or apple, you can use Google Gboard or set up apple keyboard to type Arabic and others (Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, etc.). I would beware any keyboard apps other than those if you cannot verify they are trusted.
