FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. Earlier, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 on PCs will have native support for FLAC format. Today, Joe Belfiore confirmed on Twitter that Windows 10 phones and small tablets will also support FLAC format. He also said that the first Windows 10 phone build coming in February won’t have this support, but it will come few months later.
“Yes, FLAC support will be on phones/small tablets… won’t be in the first insider build, though, will be a few months later”
This is a great news for music lovers on Windows Phone platform. Soon, they will be able to enjoy high quality music on their mobile devices.
