Voice recordings can have many audio formats. Depending on how you wish to use your recording, you may need to convert it to a different file format. The MP3 format is a common audio file format, useable in a variety of settings. The AMR file format is a standard file type for audio on many mobile devices. Finally, Android VLC files encompass a wide variety of file types, including MP3, AMR and many other audio formats.

Download a conversion program that converts to your desired format. Mobile Media Converter can convert a number of file types into MP3 or AMR files. AVS Audio Converter can also convert a number of different file types into MP3 or AMR files. Lastly, Allok MP3 to AMR Converter can convert your voice recordings into MP3 or AMR files.

In Allok MP3 to AMR Converter, this button reads "Add."

Select the output format for the conversion.
