What is an .MP3 file?

MP3 files are audio files that may store various types of audio content, including songs, audiobooks, lectures, sermons, and podcasts. The files are saved in a compressed MPEG format that uses "Layer 3" audio compression to reduce their size without much loss of quality. Because the MP3 format can store compressed audio in small file sizes, it became a standard for storing songs on CDs and distributing audio online in the 1990s and 2000s.

Since MP3 files are so common, you may encounter them in a variety of ways, such as downloading audio from the Internet, ripping music from a CD, or recording your own audio. You can use File Viewer Plus to play your MP3 files and even convert the audio to the MPEG-4 (.M4A) format and various bitrates and frequencies.
