What is a .WMA file?

WMA files are audio files saved in the Windows Media Audio (WMA) format. Microsoft developed WMA and introduced it in 1999 as an improved alternative to the MP3 format. The format features a series of codecs that consist of the original "WMA" codec, the "WMA Pro" codec for higher resolution audio, the "WMA Lossless" codec for compressing audio without losing quality, and the "WMA Voice" codec for voice content. While the WMA format may store various types of audio, users most commonly save music as WMA files to stream online.

You may acquire WMA audio files in various ways, including when downloading audio from the Internet or receiving audio recordings from co-workers, family members, or friends. You may also find old WMA audio files on your computer that store music or voice recordings. File Viewer Plus can play audio in WMA files and convert the audio to the MPEG-3 (.MP3) and MPEG-4 (.M4A) formats.
