What is a 3GA file?

A .3GA file is a Mobile phone audio file.

These 3GA files are multimedia files that contain audio (sound) data. Mostly found in supported mobile devices, the .3ga file format was developed from the 3GPP multimedia format specification. 3GPP multimedia storage technology was created through the collaboration of Organizational Partners of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project. This is also where other 3GPP standards were created to cover Core Network, Service, and Radio architectures.

Audio codecs like AMR-WB+, AMR-WB, AMR-NB, HE-AAC v2, HE-AAC v1, and AAC-LC are used in the .3ga file format. Multimedia players of supported mobile devices can be used to open audio files with the .3ga file extension.
