This new DM Chat UI/Overlay is really bad and overall more difficult to use. I see no point in it, as it just adds more inconsistencies. For one, the squares take up so much space and have a really bad color background for your profile picture that me and many other people agree is just a crummy interface now. Also, if you have a green profile picture, good luck seeing if they're talking or not.
The circles were fine and were just simple, made everything easy to use. You can't even see if someone is muted or dephen unless you hover over the them in the chat. Why? That is really inconvenient. The circles were fine, great, and simple in seeing everything.
Along with that, sharing screens is really difficult to use now in DM calls. It doesn't even go full screen, and the largest full screen you can go just makes the people appear on the right side with their fat squares. This is annoying and aggravating. Revert this back to normal along with the circle profile pictures.
This is a prime example of if it aint broke don't fix it. If you really want to keep the squares so badly, at least have more options for the user and have an option to revert back to circles and normal sharing screens. Options are helpful for anything.
TLDR: Revert back circle profile pictures in DM calls and make sharing screens the same as how it was, or at the very least at a user interface option to change it back.
