Files with the 3GA extension are multimedia files containing audio data stored in the 3GPP format. 3GA files are usually encountered on mobile phones, and they are used while recording, playing or sending audio data.

Additional information about 3GA files

3GA files have many similarities to the 3GP files, however, the former store only sound while the latter – additionally video. Audio codecs utilised for storing audio tracks in the 3GA format are:

  • AMR-WB +,
  • AMR-WB,
  • AMR-NB,
  • HE-AAC v2,
  • HE-AAC v1,
