It'll be there for a while undergoing some testing, as Blizzard looks to improve matchmaking and figure out how it'll balance characters going forward.
But now, if you're in competitive or quick play, you can choose your role before the game starts and the system will match two tanks, two supports and two damage heroes to create a team. Which, will force teams into a 2-2-2 composition - two tanks, two support, and two damage dealers. "It's not uncommon for players-who may all have different goals and play styles-to feel tension, pressure, disappointment, or even hostility as a team composition comes together".
When that update drops September 1, players will see the new Role Queue system before each Quick Play and Competitive match. While it's only natural for Role Queue to be implemented into Competitive Play, it seems the Overwatch team has chose to bring it to Quick Play as well, which can be a little stifling - especially since team members can't switch out of their current roles until the start of the next map and match.

Today is a day that marks a change to the core functionality of Overwatch that will be remembered by players everywhere for years to come.
In order to make sure it all works a Role Queue Beta Season will run for a few weeks before going live. If you don't want to take part in Role Queue, a classic option will be available in the Arcade selection.
On the Role Queue screen, players will be able to see separate wait times for each role based on how many people are choosing it. Matchmaking will be determined by player SR, but competitive players will first be required to complete five placement matches for each selected role at the start of each Competitive Season. This change is coming at the same time as the Overwatch League moves to a 2-2-2 lock starting in stage 4 on July 25, showing a trend in Overwatch esports. The need for a 2-2-2 lock is largely in response to the "GOATS" meta, a strategy that uses three tanks and three supports (typically Reinhardt, Zarya, and D.Va paired with Brigitte, Lúcio, and Zenyatta). For further details on the Role Queue, check out the official Overwatch blog.
For the time being, we've only enabled Competitive Play for 1.39 PTR.
