Is there a difference between "Kyllä" and "Joo"?

With kyllä they want you to be a bit more formal and put 'yes'; with joo it's less formal so they translate that as 'yeah'.

If youre on a phone, hold the A key for ä, and so on

Of course means yes.

So does "indeed", "absolutely" and "surely", etc., etc. ... but I don't think Duo can / should provide every synonym for yes when a basic "yes" will suffice. "Of course" translates better to "tietysti".
