WMA

WMA files are mainly used for streaming music on the web. But they can also be used for storing voice recordings or sound effects. The benefit of WMA files is their high quality audio compared to rivaling formats like MP3. Since it is developed by Microsoft, it can only be opened on Windows devices. Opening WMA files on Mac or Linux requires downloading third-party media players, or conversion to a different format. It's worth noting that WMA has a number of sub-formats; like WMA Pro which typically stores high-resolution audio; WMA Voice, which is used for streaming voice recordings; and WMA Lossless, which compresses the file without reducing its quality.

FLAC

FLAC files cannot be opened on most Mac, iOS or Android devices. FLACs usually require plugins or conversions before you can open them without trouble. If you still want to open a FLAC file, then download VLC Media player on your device, or convert it to a more compatible format like MP3. However, FLAC still offers great quality audio, because its compression doesn't rob it of its quality. The FLAC compression reduces file size by over half, making it easy to store in your device or share over the internet. FLAC is an open-source and lossless compression format. Its full name is "Free Lossless Audio Codec".
