Opening 3G2 files

Did your computer fail to open a 3G2 file? We explain what 3G2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 3G2 files.

What is a 3G2 file?

Files with the .3G2 extension are multimedia files. This particular file format was devloped by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, also known as 3GPPS.

The files with the .3g2 file extension are based on the MPEG-4 standard. The .3G2 format was created for mobile phones on CDMA networks in order to deliver and play media over high-speed wireless connections.

The .3GP format, which is similar to the .3G2 format, is what is used for cell phones on GSM networks. While most cell phones only allow for the playback of .3G2 files, some are now allowing the recording of these files as well.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
