When answering a massage you cant see the contact name or other info about the recipient anymore. (You only see the name before start typing.) So if you have many people you write to it's hard to separate them only from text parts in the conversation.

So my request is this: please put the name and an avatar pic at the top of the messenger window so one can proof the correct recipient when writing an answer.

I support this idea. It would really help a lot. It happened to me more than once that I started to write a message to the wrong person while surrounded by a whirlwind of children and noise.

Do you want to break the design or is the other request in your favor? Then please close and tag this as duplicate.

@chemist: the background image is ONE possible solution. But to be honest not my favourite. I would like more to have a small site head with pic, name and phone number.

May be the same implementation could be used as it is done at the calling screen, so the UI behavier is more uniform and familiar (There is the avatar in background like an ambience)

I always think that looks really nice, but never see it for long because it spends most of its time squished against my cheek.

Isn't that a lovely idea! Well at least in some cases :)

Nice idea, the only issue I see with it is that there might be people without any avatar so the name should probably be put somewhere as well.
