How do you become friends with someone?

Let’s say I’m playing in a public game with someone and we hit it off. I want to officially become his friend, so that we can intentionally group later on. How do I do this?

I know how to find the list of recent players. I know how to find the list of people currently on my team. But in neither place does there seem to be a context option to become friends with that person.

I feel like I’m missing something obvious, but how do you invite someone you’ve played Overwatch with to become friends?


Not sure about console but on PC at the top of your friends list there is a ‘Recent players’ tab.

If you right click on a person you will see an ‘Add friend’ option in the dialog menu which, provided that they accept the request, adds them to your friends list.


You can also right click on a person’s name in chat and add them that way (as pointed out by GnomeSlice below).
