We are thrilled to announce that our latest version of Programmable Voice Mobile SDKs, 3.0, is now generally available.

We’re excited to announce the General Availability of Twilio Client JS 1.7. With this release, Opus, a highly performant codec delivering better audio quality in various network environments, is now supported through the new Codec Preference API.
Compared to G.711 (PCMU), the other codec currently supported by Twilio Client JS, Opus delivers a superior voice quality at less than half the bandwidth (around 40kb/s as opposed to 80kb/s). We highly recommend enabling Opus in your applications to deliver this superior voice quality to your users.
