The contacts which are RCS users have the Presence icon displayed on their avatars. Below the name of a contact its status description is displayed.
The avatars shown on the list are other users profile pictures and are downloaded from the RCS platform. If a user does not have a profile picture the default picture will be shown.
The filters are on the left hand side:
- All contacts
- RCS contacts only
The purpose of the RCS icon is to provide shortcuts to RCS main features. When you click on it three icons will appear representing video call, audio call and chat.
When you click anywhere else on a contact’s row the Contact details view will appear.
Contact details view
This view will differ depending whether the contact is RCS or non RCS.
The view can contain only one contact’s item i.e. a phone number or Vippie ID. If there are more items for one contact the view will be composed from multiple screens, each for one item.
Small arrow icon next to the number indicate that there are multiple screens. To navigate between them click an arrow and choose number.
Non RCS contact
The view will contain data stored locally on the PC which include phone number and name.
The upper part of the view shows the profile picture of the user associated with the contact item (phone number or Vippie ID). If a user has not uploaded his picture the application will show the default avatar.
The small icon on the avatar shows the user Presence status which can be:
- Full green circle – online
- Half circle – on PUSH notification
- Gray – offline
Next to the avatar the status text is shown.
The lower part of the screen presents the item (e.g. phone number) and the buttons which initiate one of the RCS free communication types:
- Voice call
- Video call
