Description George Kiagiadakis 2013-04-28 08:33:03 UTC
I often find myself having a chat open with somebody, to whom I haven't been talking for a few hours maybe and then I want to start chit-chatting with him/her, but I am not sure if he/she is online from the phone or the computer. On the phone, I most probably will be disturbing, so what I end up doing is open the contact list, search for the name, look at the icon, close the contact list. This is a bit annoying. It would be nice to have this indication in the text-ui as well.

Similar thing happens if you don't have a chat open but you use krunner to open it... contact-runner also doesn't have this indication, so you have to open the CL again anyway.

Taking example from others, if you look at the G+ and facebook chat, whenever someone is on the phone, his presence icon is just the phone. It is more important I think to know this information, rather than knowing the presence.

Reproducible: Always
