“Smart Call” versus “Call” indicator: Know when you are explicitly calling a Skype4B Contact or Using “Smart Call”

We are now using distinct icons to visually show when a call button is a “Smart Call” or regular Skype for Business/Lync “Call” button. The Smart Call icon includes an extra dot to indicate it is using Smart Call logic to determine the number that will be called.
