How to Convert WAV to MP3 for Google Music
WAV usually stands for high audio quality. Many people still purchase CD and extract them to WAV format. Unfortunately, Google Music doesn't support WAV format. So you have to stay off from Google Music, or find some way to put WAV on Google Music.
As for audio quality, Google Music support up to 320kbps MP3 music, which, in my opinion, is good enough to listen to. Even the FLAC, one of famous lossless audio format, would be transcoded to 320kbps on Google Music. Now we will show you how to convert WAV to high quality MP3 so that you can upload WAV to Google Music and play virtually anywhere.

WAV is the standard audio format used for CD, which usually saved audio data in a 44.1 KHz, 16-bit and stereo format. WAV files are similar to AIFF files. WAV is the most common audio format used in Windows-based computers, while AIFF is more common in Macintosh systems. Both of them are not supported by Google Music.
