Convert 3GP to WMA online, for free.
3GPP (3GP) is a multimedia container format designed for third generation (3G) universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) networks, which is a global system for mobile (GSM) standard. Since UMTS is a technology for mobile, the 3GP format allows mobile phones on UMTS networks to capture, save, deliver, and play media over high-speed wireless connections.
The best application for opening 3GP is Apple QuickTime. And although 3GP is designed for mobile, the file format opens easily on most operating systems, including Linux, Mac, and Windows.
3GP is a flexible file format that supports captions and subtitles via 3GPP Timed Text. It does not support interactive menus, but it is compatible with free third-party tools that provide such support. One example is AutoGK. To improve the quality of the video while viewing off-mobile, convert the file to MP4.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
