Hi, ProductHunt! This is Jack from Duolingo. Today, we're incredibly excited to announce a new feature called Bots - the most advanced way to learn a language. From grabbing a slice of pizza to hailing a taxi, Bots prepare you for real-life conversations — minus the awkwardness and anxiety.

Learning to speak a new language is not only daunting: it’s also inaccessible to most language learners. In most classrooms, the majority of the time is spent in silence listening to teachers, so speaking practice is reserved to those who can afford to travel abroad or hire personal tutors. Furthering Duolingo’s mission of making language education accessible to all, Bots are here to democratize conversation.

We like to think of the Bots as your virtual language tutors - they'll never judge you, they're available on demand and their level of conversation is tailored to your language proficiency.

We're so excited to finally share this with the world and as always, the Duolingo team is here to answer any questions you may have.

This is the best use of bots I've seen so far. I don't really want to order a pizza through Facebook messenger, but this is a fun way to study Spanish.

This is very smart and something I will definitely download, but why does everyone here seem to post their launch that is for iOS only? The world has Android phones as well. In fact there are more Android users than all other markets combined. In my honest opinion it is not a good thing for a company to launch solely on iOS instead of Android. For example... Show More
