The Opus codec is used for Voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, in-game chat. The Opus format was standardized by the IETF and is maintained by Xiph.Org.

Since the Opus codec is primarily used for streaming, files with the ".opus" extension that are encoded with the Opus codec are not common.
