Component state changes do not appear in prototype when watching other users perspective

Just had a call with a client (the use of interactive components was minimal) and I noticed that I was not able to see state changes when watching their perspective.

Only those who are in the beta can view interactive components in the prototype, as far as I know. But I could be wrong, I haven’t found much info regarding this in the docs.

Also if by “watching their perspective” you mean observation mode (when you click their avatar and follow them), this is not supported yet as stated in the docs: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360061175334-Create-interactive-components-with-variants#View_interactions

Hey there, People not in the beta should still be able to use interactive components for themselves in prototypes.

But the observation mode won’t work yet, sorry about that! Hope that clarifies this situation!

Yep, sounds good. Just trying to report things I find so if it is already noted np.
