Better Mute Status Indication
It is difficult/not obvious to know when I am on mute or not. Sometimes I am not on mute when I should be, and other times, I start talking without realizing I am still on mute.
I have to hover mouse over screen for the buttons and mute status to show up. It would be great to have a better way of knowing mute status - perhaps something in title bar, or something easy to see at a glance.
I would LOVE to have an always-visible indication if I am on mute - in a similar product, I have seen a very handy "watermark" style for a red microphone icon used (see screenshot).

This is so annoying. I do have a mute/unmute button on my headset, but it is awkward without a clear indication whether you are currently muted. Sometimes I'm not muted when I should and sometimes I start to talk when I'm apparently still muted.
I do appreciate the message that pops up when I speak and I'm still muted, but there needs to be a constantly visible indicator that clearly shows mute status. The current icon of a microphone with a slash is unclear. Is that what I click to mute or click to remove the slash. Green unmuted to red muted would be much clearer. And even the word "Muted" or "Unmuted" across the top of the window would be good.

Changing the border colour of the app to indicate when "on air" or muted should help make those clearer.
