The end of MP3

The end of MP3

MP3 – this word is familiar even to persons who are not technologically savvy. The MP3 has been the standard downloaded audio format for millions of people for their smartphones or laptops. But no longer as the developers have decided not to renew the license to software developers.

While MP3  digitally compressed the content to a very small size the quality was compromised . Newer formats like AAC family or in the future MPEG-H have found favour with the new smartphones as they are able to compress without losing the quality of the audio. So in a few days MP3 is going to end its long run as the undisputed  mode of hearing songs.
