Valid file extensions for ansible inventory

I put 3 inventory file under directory /etc/ansible/hosts ,the file extension is .ini, but the result of ansible command show that this files are not recognized as inventory file.

quote from official document

Host and group variable files must use YAML syntax. Valid file extensions include ‘.yml’, ‘.yaml’, ‘.json’, or no file extension.
