Convert 3GA to M4A online, for free.
The 3rd Generation Audio (3GA) file format is the audio stream portion of a 3GPP multimedia container, and it is designed for 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) mobile networks. Because 3GA files are heavily compressed and focused on narrowband signals, they are not suitable for music files.
By default, 3GA files open in VLC media player and QuickTime for Mac. 3GA files also open in the voice recorder applications of most mobile phones. Because it is common to use 3GA files for MMS messaging, most 3G mobile devices can open them.
Other programs that can open 3GA files include, Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, and MPlayer. If opening a 3GA file is problematic, then rename the file to include the extension “3GP” and try to open it again.

MPEG 4 Audio (M4A) compresses and encodes audio files by using one of two coder-decoder algorithms: Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) or Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). M4A files are smaller in size while simultaneously better in quality than MP3 files, with which it shares the most similarities, in comparison to all other audio file formats.
M4A files open in most well-known, audio-playback programs, including iTunes, QuickTime, and Windows Media Player. For Apple users, iTunes is the default program to open M4A files. For Windows users, the default program is Windows Media Player. Users can also preview M4A files by highlighting the file and pressing the spacebar.
