Abstract

See full text

Examples include a system, method and program for notifying presence of a phone call participant. In an example, a computer receives a request from a first calling device to connect with one or more second calling devices through a network. The computer provides a presence notification on the first calling devices wherein the presence notification provides a repeating indicator which represents that the one or more second calling devices are connected. The computer determines that the one or more second calling devices has disconnected and in response the computer ceases the presence notification on the first calling device.
