Ok I didn't know which forum to post this under since there isn't really a general forum for suggestions.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why you can't chat with players while you are spectating a game. The game is delayed on purpose so you can't assist a friend in what is going on, so I see no drawback to adding in chat.

I would watch games while waiting for friends to finish theirs to queue with them (not always watching their games though) I couldn't communicate with them outside of leaving the spectate, checking on them, then watching more. This is really inconveniencing and I was wondering if others felt the same way as I did, and if there will be a chat function implemented, or even just letting us stay on the pvp.net client and just alt tabbing between a spectated game etc.

It would be nice for friends to have chat in spectate, the only issue I can think of is that it could be rather distracting.
e.g. You're in the middle of typing a sentence and someone pops up to gank you.

It's just as distracting as if they're chatting while not spectating.

You can just fine. Just turn the chat box on, and then type /w "Friend's name here" Message here.

When you are spectating, there's an option for you to enable chat, where you can see what they are saying in ALL chat, AND you can do the command /w (summonername) to talk to your friend in game, or any other people while still spectating.

Hey bro, they did X buff at Y time so it spawns at exactly Z. You had no vision so I'm just telling you this.

However, I believe that spectators should be able to chat amongst each other.
