Please note: different devices use different audio-recording software, and different software records in different formats. Audio recordings might save and export in a common format like MP4, or they might use a format more specific to the mobile platform, like 3GPP. If you have trouble opening and playing your audio files, you might need to install software like VLC that plays the format in which it was saved.
