If no devices are connected, or Display Mode is set to Panel (see below), this menu will be labeled Mobile Devices. It will always contain the main extension controls: The Do Not Disturb switch, and the Mobile Settings option to launch the extension's preferences window.

If set to Panel, each device will be given an indicator with an icon that represents the device type (smartphone, tablet or laptop). Controls for the device will be in popup menu available by clicking on the icon.
