Hero Switching is now enabled in Friendly matches by default, and Custom matches if the host of the match enables it. This allows you to choose a different hero when you have been killed. Be aware that switching your hero, or their block loadout, will destroy any blocks which you have placed which are not available to all heroes.
A preliminary version of voice chat is now present. You will only be heard in the Hero Select screen and in a match. Only your team will hear anything you say over voice chat. You can turn voice chat off completely in the settings menu if you do not wish to hear other players (Settings > Audio). This will stop you hearing anything other players are saying, and will stop you from being heard by other players.
