Convert 3GA to MP3 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-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) is a digital, audio-coding format used to compress a sound sequence into a very small file to enable digital storage and transmission. MP3 files are the most widely-used audio file for consumers. Due to small size and acceptable quality, MP3 files are accessible to a wide audience, as well as easy to store and share.
Because MP3 files are so prevalent, most major audio playback programs support them. Simply clicking on the file will open it in iTunes or Windows Media Player, depending on your preferred platform. Users can also preview MP3 files.
Another program that can open MP3 files is VLC media player. Keep in mind that two other file types use the MP3 extension. They are Masterpoint green points data, which is obsolete; and TeslaCrypt 3.0 ransomware encrypted file, which is malware that demanded ransom in bitcoins, but is thankfully now deactivated and no longer a threat.
Initial Release: 1993
