The announcement that the company will end its licensing programme stated that:

“Although there are more efficient audio codecs with advanced features available today, mp3 is still very popular amongst consumers.

“However, most state-of-the-art media services such as streaming or TV and radio broadcasting use modern ISO-MPEG codecs such as the AAC family or in the future MPEG-H. Those can deliver more features and a higher audio quality at much lower bitrates compared to mp3.”

MP3 is the most widely used format which also help users for easier download. There will be some stragglers who still support the MP3. However, newer formats will be the standard AAC (Advanced Audio Coding).
