Badges are icons shown on the status bar when an Android device receives a notification. Here's how it looks:
By default, the badge within your web push notifications shows the browser icon.
Due to this, your Android subscribers will not be able to distinguish your web push notifications from notifications sent by other stores or from the browser directly.
By adding a badge to your notification, your Android subscribers will be able to recognize you instantly.
Note: Your badge has to be a 72 x 72 px PNG image with a transparent background. Without a transparent background, the browser will send across as a distorted image to your Android subscribers.
