The 3GP file format is part of the 3GPP multimedia format family. 3GPP is an acronym for “3rd Generation Partnership Project”, a multimedia services program aimed at upgrading the transmission of video and audio files between 3G-capable devices and over the internet.

3GP files can contain both audio and video data. Even though they’ve been superseded by the new 3G2 files, they’re still popular. Both formats are still used for sending multimedia content between Smartphones and are supported by a wide range of terminals from any mobile carrier.

Files of the 3GP format are supported by multiple media players (see below) and can also be converted to other, more popular formats.
