Here’s what’s up: if you want to add friends to play with in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2, you’ll need to add them to your friend list.

Now you can normally invite your friends to your group via the social hub and play together.
Warzone 2 and Season 1 Error
It looks like the normal friend invitation doesn’t work anymore since the release of Season 1 and Warzone 2. If you invite a friend to your group now, you get kicked to the main menu.
To successfully invite friends to a group, you need to create your own channel in the “Channel” tab. You can find it in the menu at the top of the screen. The icon for it is a headphone. Your friends can join your group through this voice channel.
