Duolingo is working on a music app
Duolingo is gradually expanding and launching new ancillary projects that could generate significant revenue in the coming years.
Duolingo, a language learning app with over 500 million users, is working on a music app.
The tech company currently has a small team working on a music product and is hiring a scholar who is “an expert in music education who combines both the theoretical knowledge of relevant teaching research and practical teaching experience,” according to vacancy announcement. The company also posted jobs for a freelance music consultant and curriculum consultant, but the company is no longer accepting applications for them.
These jobs suggest that the app will teach basic music theory using popular songs and teachers. Also, it’s interesting to note that Duolingo’s business director Bob Meese is an investor in Trala, a tech company that offers virtual violin lessons. She recently raised $8 million in her Series A.
Duolingo is gradually expanding and launching new ancillary projects that could generate significant revenue in the coming years. For example, The Duolingo English Test was created as part of a hackathon in 2014, it is an online certification exam that tests knowledge of the language. During the pandemic, the company also launched Duolingo ABC, a free app aimed at learning English for kids aged 3 to 6.
In October 2022, the company announced Duolingo Math in its first expansion beyond language learning. The math app is free and is similar to learning a language – both require methodical thinking and the ability to apply what you’ve learned to get answers. Language, math, and music – Duolingo provides users with an understanding of the basics in their apps. This is where the company’s approach differs, focusing on building blocks rather than specific skill as a way to learn a skill.
It’s unclear what the Duolingo music app will look like. For example, we don’t know if the app will help people read sheet music, write music, learn instruments, or all of the above – or if it’s just a tiny experiment in an organization that is known to love testing everything.
Meanwhile, Duolingo itself more than doubled its paid subscriber base last year, according to its latest quarterly report. Total revenue also nearly doubled to $369.5M in 2022.
