dear authors of chat programs: please stop putting one-click buttons for voice and video calls in easy-to-accidentally-press locations. at least make it a submenu, or add a conformation dialog before calling. terrible, terrible user experience.
on the @matrix client for android, the send button *becomes a 📞 * when the text field is empty. hope your touch didn't register twice!
@lifning oh my god. yes. every time i have ever used the video call feature in facebook messenger or snapchat it has been because one of us hit the button by accident.
@lifning also lets not talk about that one time i accidentally skype called 14 people in india at work
yeah um i am definitely trying to forget that ever happened
@lifning It's surprising how often an otherwise amazing program is ruined by poor UI. x-x;; I'm with you all the way on this one!!
@lifning Maybe a good solution would be requiring a hold press to make it easy to call intentionally but hard accidentally.
Or maybe a swipe gesture like for unlocking phones.
@lifning Every time I accidentally hit the call button in Riot on Android, I'm like "thank GOD it has a secondary prompt afterward ._."
@chr Discord actually fixed this! The call button used to be top-level in DMs on mobile, but now "start call" and "start video call" are both in the overflow menu!
@lifning one click message send! One click voice call! One click video call! One click “last item on photo roll”! One click “whatever your selfie cam is looking at”! One click “send naked pictures to the largest group chat you’re in”! 2018 is time for one click convenience
