Over the last few months, eJOY has received many comments from you all about “my words on eJOY app are not the same as on eJOY extension” (no sync between app & extension). We are so thrilled today to tell you that…
The Sync is Available Now.
In this post, I will explain in details to you:
- What it is, the sync
- How to apply it on your device
Not just that, there are many other interesting updates in this new version. I’m sure you don’t want to miss them. Let’s discover them!
Syncing vocabulary means that the words on eJOY App are the same as on eJOY eXtension. Let’s look at the picture below to see how the sync works
You’ve added a phrase “forces of nature” (left). After syncing, this phrase is available on eJOY eXtension (right).
Points and Streak
Syncing points means that the experience points (XP) are consistent as one number across all devices.
Let’s look at the example below to see the difference.
You got 500 XP on App by watching a video (left) and got 1208 XP on eXtension game by doing Daily Challenge (right).
The result after syncing is shown as follows.
*tada*, with 1708XP, you’ve achieved the daily goal at the 1500XP level and got 1 streak. This result now is the same on both smartphone and laptop.
In terms of STREAK, after the “sync now” button is pressed, the higher number of streaks on either App or eXtension will remain.
For example, you have 0 streak on App and 30 streaks on eXtension. After syncing, your streak is 30, consistent on both App and eXtension.
From now on, even if you just have a laptop, you can complete your daily goal.
How to sync
- With a PRO account: your new words are updated immediately after you press SYNC NOW on eJOY App. On eJOY extension, data is automatically synced.
- With a Basic account: your new words are synced after you press SYNC NOW on eJOY App and eXtension

1. Daily Challenge on App
With the Spaced Repetition Technique, eJOY Daily Challenge will show you the list of words you are about to forget each day. Therefore, you don’t have to waste time to review words you have mastered.
Daily Challenge is a task that you should overcome every day to gain streak. In detail, you will be challenged with different types of games such as Multiple Choices, Fill in the blanks, and especially Speaking.

Previously, audio on the video you are watching is off once you open another app. From now on the new version will maintain the audio.
