Great podcast but we need in-app audio back!

Asked Duolingo this directly before and not got a response, so not expecting an answer but, but why did you remove the audio lessons in the main app?!

When it was removed you promised to “replace it with something better soon”, but it has been gone long enough to confirm that was just a lie to keep us quiet when you took it away.

It was the only way to learn in the app hands-free. Not everyone can easily use their hands and all the timed match madness type lessons are unusable for some.

If you were truly committed to “bringing language learning to everyone”, you’d listen to all your users pleading for the reinstatement of this feature.

Please, just give us it back!

I love duoooooo

Duolingo is so fun and so is the podcast 😜

Chi chi listic chi chi ,

I agree with Roblox is superb.👍👍👍👍

I agree because some people don’t really understand the language so Duolingo could keep the French podcast then translate them in English. Some stories could be dramatic and I loooooove drama. I can’t understand them if it’s not in English. Duolingo I still like your French podcasts By C.O
