Standing for Waveform Audio File format, a WAV file is a container audio file format that was created by Microsoft and IBM to store the audio bitstream on systems. The format is capable of storing the audio data, bit rate, track number as well as the sample rate. AV files are lossless files that are uncompressed and thus can occupy large storage space. The format is suitable in situations when you need high-quality audio.
2. What is the difference between WAV and MP3?
WAV and MP3 are both popularly used audio file formats that are used for digital audio storage. One of the major differences between these formats is the compression, WAV is an uncompressed format with lossless quality while MP3 is a compressed format with lossy quality. Being uncompressed in nature, WAV files are large in size while the MP3 files are smaller.
WAV files are used in professional recordings when high-quality audio is required. MP3 on the other hand, being smaller in size can be easily used for streaming, sharing, and transfer.

On the other hand, when it comes to quality FLAC and WAV being uncompressed and lossless in nature are better in quality and better than MP4 format.
