Summary: no tooltips in Hello client panel → No tooltips on conversation window title bar
Sevaan: Assuming we're not going to drastically add/remove icons in the redesign, can we get suggested tooltips for these if you want them?

From LRT: Sharing Controls, Hide (which switches to Show when in minimized state), Pop-Out, Leave Conversation

In the refresh we will also have a "Full-screen"

Phlsa, what do you think? Not sure if Sharing Controls is right.

Sorry, lets use Minimize/Maximize instead of Show/Hide.
How about using »Control sharing« instead?
Otherwise those seem fine.

Actually: Do we even need that camera indicator? From my (limited) investigation, it seems like the only thing it does is give users the option to shoot themselves in the foot. If they want to cam-mute, that icon is right there one row below... (probably a different bug)

Control Sharing is good.

I'm not sure about why the icon is there either. I would much rather have it drop from the camera button in the UI, but I recall there being some sort of technical reason. Standard8, do you have any insight?

Probably off-topic for this bug, but I expect its a privacy concern more than anything - a user needs a clear indication of which window/tab is sharing the camera. It might become more necessary if we move to a model where e.g. ending a call stops sharing the camera.
