Opening WBMP files

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

What is a WBMP file?

WBMP files are Wireless Application Protocol Bitmap Files, usually referred to as Wireless Bitmap images. Files that contain the .wbmp file extension store bitmap images that have been saved in black and white.

In the WBMP file format, monochrome images are created in pixels. Pixels represented by a 1 are saved as white and pixels represented by a 0 are saved in black. These images can then be sent using wireless SMS messaging devices.

WBMP images are used by a variety of mobile devices and were popular before common mobile devices were capable of handling and transmitting full color images and video media.
