8 Important Things to Know About Audible Badges

Know these things to understand better how Audible badges work.

  1. Audible badges are nothing more than collector’s items. Consider them as your achievements or like trophies in your cabinet.
  2. With badges, Audible motivates customers to listen to more audiobooks. While some of them are achievable after listening on weekends or lunch times, other motivates you to finish more titles in less time.
  3. Tapping on an unlocked badge will highlight the achievement that earned you the badge with an option to share your achievement on social media by tapping on the Brag about it button. Tapping on a locked badge will share a mystery poem with an idea of how to unlock it.

  1. The badges can only be viewed on Audible apps for Android and iOS. Users can not track the badges on the Audible website.
  2. Audible badges are linked to your account. You will retain them even if you log in to a new device or reinstall the app.
  3. The badges earned on one device sync to other devices where you are using Audible. You will see your badge collection on all the devices where you sign in with your account.
  4. Each listener has a unique badge collection highlighting their achievements. Sharing Audible content through Amazon Household will not share your badge collection. Similarly, if you merge two Audible accounts, your badge collection will not transfer.
  5. Once you have achieved the threshold required to obtain the basic level of a badge, it may take some time to unlock the badge. You will get a notification when the badge is unlocked.

Brands use badges and reward systems to celebrate customer’s accomplishments. I love it when I get an unexpected notification about unlocking a new badge when listening to an audiobook.

How to Get Audible Badges

This section explains what is the threshold to unlock each of the badges and what it takes to get the Silver or Golden ring.

1: 7-Day Stretch Badge

Audible's 7 days stretch badge

3: High Noon Badge
