How to open file with AB extension?

AB file description

An .AB file is a backup file that is created by the Android Debug Bridge (adb) command-line tool supported by Android Software Development Kit (SDK). The AB backup file consists of references to developer libraries, system, and user data that can be used to restore the device applications by using the adb command-line tool.
