I'm working on a web application which uses web rtc. Peers can connect to other peers. The interface will change quite a bit depending on who is the caller vs. callee.

What are appropriate terms and/or icons to notify the current user whether they initiated the peer connection, or they answered an incoming peer connection? I'd like to display prominently whether the current user is the initiator or receiver.

The application only allows two peers to connect at any given time.

  • Can you use a short phrase? "Your call to Mickey" and "Call from Looshi" are examples. – JeromeR Nov 22 '15 at 12:14
  • @JeromeR I could do that, however it's not really a 'call' like a phone call. It's a more general connection that allows the peers to share files. – looshi Nov 22 '15 at 16:45
