Blizzard details two new features coming soon to Heroes of the Storm.

The next update for Heroes of the Storm will bring two new fan-requested additions to the game, Blizzard has revealed.

First up, Blizzard is increasing the number of observer slots available in custom game lobbies from two to six. The developer says this could prove very helpful for multi-language streams.
