Is it right to say ‘You are friends’?

If I want to say to a group of people that they are each other’s friends, can I say:

You’re friends.

or should absolutely say:

You’re each other’s friends


I think I got your point, the answer is Yes

In standard English, you is both singular and plural; it always takes a verb form that originally marked the word as plural, (i.e. you are, in common with we are and they are).

From Wikipedia

That means while using “You“, you are already referring to the group of people, and thus making the “friends” or other adjective/adverb/clauses/etc. pointing to all subjects of “You“.
