I think the obvious disadvantage of the Duolingo test is that the validty of the test results is too low.
The validity here is that examinees are often cancelled because of some external sounds, such as car honking. Different from IELTS and TOEFL, Duolingo test often adopt the policy of canceling scores or even banning exams, even if students did not cheat.
