Once the button is pressed, a secondary window will be displayed.
The name of the contact, the time spent on the call, a voice animation and the following call controls will appear in the call window: mute, hang up and switch to video call.
As for video calls, the same elements will appear as regular calls, only the voice spectrum is removed and the webcam image is added.
