Duo has been redesigned. For guilt tripping?

The verge

 

As shown above. Duo from Duolingo, the language learning app has been redesigned. To bring you back probably

Quote

The developers at Duolingo know this email campaign works, because they’ve A/B tested several iterations of the crying owl, down to how many teardrops he sheds. Today, the company is launching its biggest redesign in five years, and Duo is at the forefront. Now the owl’s illustration has been simplified to make it easier to animate, and he’s been given a wide array of expressive emotions in hopes that users will become more attached to the mascot. He’ll even cry animated tears in your inbox now. “It’s so sad and pathetic :(,” a Duolingo spokesperson told me.

The CEO and CO FOUNDER said that it "Opened up a pandora's box" and so now allows for more animation

Quote

Changing Duo’s design was a task that, according to Duolingo CEO and co-founder Luis von Ahn, ”opened up a Pandora’s Box” to change the rest of the app, so the entire interface has been overhauled with a blockier, more cartoony design. Laying out every screen in the app side by side, the design team noticed inconsistencies that had piled up through years of development and testing — von Ahn estimates the app to have about 200 different screens. The goal was to unify all these different pages with a new design language that allowed for significantly more animation

Personally, Duo is cute and the redesign makes it even cuter. Maybe there will be a period of time where people will animate Duo and have it turn into a full on trend, That would be a trend I'll love to see.

Turn off notifs, or make it remind you at an earlier time.

imo, I don't even see why they're doing this. It doesn't help them at all, does it? So many companies don't understand the phrase: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
