Did your computer fail to open an AMR file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .AMR files.
What is an AMR file?
An .AMR file is an Adaptive Multi Rate encoded audio file. AMR stands for Adaptive Multi-Rate. The .amr file format was developed by Ericsson. Files with the .amr extension are compressed audio files that have been optimized to record speech.
The AMR file format was created for cell phone voice recordings. When a user creates a voice message or voice memo with certain cellular phones, the files are created with the .amr file extension.
Unlike many of the other audio codec formats used for digital devices, the sound quality of AMR files is not ideal. This is because these files are optimized for speech recording and not for quality audio playback.
We have not yet verified any programs for Windows that work with this specific file format. If you know one, please use the 'Suggest a program' link below. Thanks!
