From Blizzard Entertainment:

Starting today, you’ll be able to play Overwatch with friends across multiple platforms! If you play on console, you will need to connect to a Battle.net account. Cross-play will be enabled for PC players automatically.

Group up with friends on any platform for Quick Play, Arcade, and Custom games.

Console players can join the same Competitive lobbies across PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.

PC players will only be matched with other PC players in ranked matches.
