Pressing Enter does not seem to open the chat and I couldn't find any option to enable it during the match.

When I spectate a friend's match, is there a way for me to chat with him sending private messages?


As specified elsewhere, there is no way to communicate with a person in another match without private messages or a clan channel. As well, you are spectating on a 3 minute delay; this is to prevent people from influencing the match by spectating (watching team A and warning a friend on team B, for example).

  • Yes, but how do you send private messages if you can't open the chat? – BrunoLM Feb 10 '14 at 20:14

    The only way currently is via a third-party application like Skype, Ventrilo, Mumble, Teamspeak, or even conventional messaging apps like AIM or MSN Messenger. Not ideal, I know--but that's how the game is so far. – Mirudus Feb 11 '14 at 8:37

As you correctly noticed, currently, you can not open the chat dialog when spectating. Thus, you can not send text messages to your friend while spectating him.
