Opus is one of two voice codecs selected as mandatory to implement in WebRTC (the other codec is G.711).

As a codec, Opus is capable of supporting narrowband and up to stereo fullband while using low bitrates with high resiliency.

Opus is a relatively new voice codec defined in the IETF RFC 6716.
