The Streak Society is something that’s caused a bit of a stir in the Duolingo community recently. Many logged in for their daily lessons to find that they were now members of this swanky new club.
So what exactly is the Streak Society? How do you find it? What do you get for being a member? And is it really that big of a deal?
Let’s take a look!

What is Streak Society?
The Streak Society is described as Duolingo’s most exclusive club.
This is because it’s only open to users who have a current streak of 365 days or more. To become a member of the Streak Society, therefore, you have to hit your daily XP goal every day for at least a year.
How do you see it?
To view your Streak Society membership, simply head over to your profile page and swipe down to your streak counter.
If your streak is over 365 days then your counter should automatically go dark with a couple of spotlights in the background. This indicates to you and everyone that views your profile that you are a member of the Streak Society.
You can also tap the streak counter for a little pop up that explains your membership, and, if you want, you can even share this with your friends and family to let them know just how much of a streak freak you are!
What do you get?
Unfortunately, you don’t get that much for being part of the Streak Society. There are no fancy features or benefits. You simply get bragging rights for being able to hold down such a killer streak.
In this respect, Streak Society membership is basically just a status symbol.
That said, if you haven’t yet reached the necessary 365-day streak, then there is something else for you to look forward to: the Wildfire achievement, which turns gold once you’ve hit the big 365.

Why you might not have it
Streak Society is currently only available on iOS devices, so if you can’t see it, it’s likely you’re using an Android device or you’re logging in on your computer.
If you’re using an iOS device and you still can’t see it even though your streak is long enough, then it could be that you need to update the app. Alternatively, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling the app and hopefully this will sort it out.
Initial impressions of the Streak Society
I think the Streak Society is a neat little addition in the sense that it recognises Duolingo’s most dedicated members. I’m a big fan of maintaining a huge streak, so this is a nice little bonus to help motivate you.
But beyond this, it doesn’t really add much. It’s a shame as well that non-iOS users don’t currently get the same recognition, though I’m sure this will be rectified going forward.
So if you qualify for Streak Society membership but you can’t currently see it on your profile, then don’t worry too much about it: you’re not missing out on much!
Have your say!
So what do you think of the Streak Society?
Are you one of the ‘lucky’ members?
Do you think it’s a good reward for maintaining a mammoth streak?
