Blizzard might be developing Overwatch 2 right now, but that hasn't stopped them from supporting its predecessor. The developers are continuously trying to balance several of Overwatch’s Heroes and their abilities. All the changes made in this update are only available in Experimental Mode. This means that not all of the modifications will make their way to the final live build.

Support Heroes are not going to shout “Group up with me” when they are low on health any more. Brigitte's base health has been reduced to 150 from 175. Hanzo can now manually cancel his Storm Arrows and Mei can destroy her Wall Ice when she’s dead. Symmetra and Torbjorn can also destroy their gadgets (Teleporter and Deploy Turret respectively) when they are dead.

The complete patch notes of the update are mentioned below. You can also read them from the official site.
