Release notes 103.2: Overwatch is here

New Overwatch support is here! This version brings big updates to Overwatch players. Here’s what it includes:

Improved

  • Co-existence with other overlay programs - It’s no secret that many overlay programs don’t play nicely when they’re being used  together. However, in our continuous effort to make the gaming world better, we’ve made significant work to improve the in-game experience when running with overlay programs like:
    • Mumble
    • Curse
    • Discord
    • MSI Afterburner
    • Plays.tv
  • Opacity slider – Following your (loud and clear) feedback, we restored the beloved opacity slider for the Overwolf Browser. We also relocated the opacity slider for all apps that support it. It is now available through the title bar at the top of the app.

Coming soon

  • Game summary – Working hard on supporting Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
  • Overwolf skins – Expect to see the much awaited support for skinning Overwolf Windows.
  • Appstore – An exciting design update to the Appstore is on the way.

Stay awesome!   Ililush
