How to Spectate on Console

On consoles, you should open the friend list and find the desired friend. If he or she is playing the match in a complete lobby, you need to join his or her game to appear in spectator mode. Feel free to change between players and spectate individually over your friend. Also, take into account that you can always ask your friend to invite you; it will also make you appear as a spectator. 

How to Spectate on PC

On PC, you need to open the Social Menu and right-click on your friend. Among all options, there will be an option spectate that works even if the lobby is not full. That is the main advantage of spectating on PC over spectating on the console.

That’s it with spectating in Overwatch 2. As you can see, nothing is challenging about spectating in this video game. You only need to keep in mind that you can not spectate your friend on consoles if the lobby is not complete.
