When is Ukrainian expected on the android app?

Surviving on the mobile page for now, but the app would be nice :)

June 1, 2015



The Ukrainian course is in beta, which means the current launch is a "test" version where users are trying it out and reporting any errors. Whenever a new course begins beta testing, it is first released to the website, as multi-platform support is a recipe for more errors and extra work for those involved in creating the course (both the course's volunteers and the Duolingo staff). Once the course becomes more stable, as measured by the average number of reports per 100 users, it will be released to the app via an update. Based on previous courses, this should take a few weeks. I think the most recent beta launch, Turkish for English speakers, took around a month to become available on the apps.

In the meantime (and I'm mentioning this mostly for others checking here for answers), you can access the course on your mobile device through your web browser. There's a mobile version of the site that looks very close to the app and supports languages as soon as they're released to beta. You can also switch to the desktop version (while still on your mobile browser) if you'd like to help out the course creators by reporting errors (the report a problem button isn't in the mobile version of the site), but it's a bit clunkier to use. Just be sure you're checking for updates for the app so you can get the course on your app as soon as it's available.

Hope this helps!


Yeah cannot ask questions in the mobile site...which is a drag. Since it is much easier to use the keyboard on the phone, I am doing the language there.

Thanks...was expecting about a month or so...but just wanted to check.


If you click the menu in the top right corner (looks like three white bars, basically), there's an option for "view full site" which is what I've been doing when I don't have a computer so I can still access sentence discussions and report problems. It's not the best solution, but it works.
