What is a .WMA file?

wma file icon

The Windows Media Audio (WMA) format is developed by Microsoft and was introduced in 1999 as an improved alternative to the MP3 format. It 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 is used to store various types of audio, it is most commonly used to stream music online.

You may acquire WMA audio files in a variety of ways, including when downloading audio from the Internet or receiving audio recodings 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 be used to play audio in WMA files, as well as convert the audio to the MPEG-3 (.MP3) and MPEG-4 (.M4A) formats.
