What is the difference between .keystore and .jks?

I've lost the keystore file and requested new one from Google, they send me the instructions to follow to generate the new one so that I can continue uploading with it,
the instructions included this step to generate the key:
keytool -genkeypair -alias upload -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 9125 -keystore keystore.jks

this command line generates a key with .jks extension, but in Visual studio the generated keys via the UI are in the .keystore extension,
are they different?
should I use the keystore instead in Xamarin development?
