Issue with the Android app and vocabulary exercises.

I use Duo mostly on my phone. I upgraded the app recently, and now the vocabulary exercises that have pictures and the word to translate at the top, no longer include the word.

There are a few issues here. First the pictures don't really convey complex words well. I just got what I thought was "map;" turns out the answer was "country."

Also not having the word to translate makes this exercise pointless for anyone doing a reverse tree. I work on both Spanish from English lessons and English from Spanish daily. I'm a native English speaker, and these are impossible now even though I clearly know all these words in English. (I thought "prison" was "floor," "root" was "tree," and "street" was "forest.")

I am not sure if this is intentional (or wide-spread) or not, but it is definitely not working for me.

Hi @ignatznkrazy,

Thanks for lettings us know! We're looking into the issue and will have a fix out as soon as we can :)


One quick question: which Android OS version are you running?


Thanks. I had just upgraded to Lollipop (Android 5.0) on the same day that I upgraded the Duo app. It was after that that I started to have this problem.


Our next update should fix this issue, we'll have that out very soon (in the next few days hopefully!) Thank you for being patient and for letting us know.
