Short for Windows Media Audio, WMA is a file format developed by Microsoft for the encoding of digital audio files. Capable of the same quality as an MP3 with a higher compression rate, WMA achieves acceptable audio quality with bitrates as low as 64 kbps.

Note

In Microsoft Windows WMA files are usually played with Windows Media Player, but most programs capable of playing audio files support this file format.
