As of now we dont see the online status (Online, Away, etc) of the other person in sametime chat window. The online status (Online, Away, etc) should be visible in the chat window also. The chat window may display a little status icon like in sametime contacts list.
Although i know we can get the status updates in the window, but a icon would be give the current status. 
So a little icon would inform us about the online status of the person.

What version of Sametime are you talking about? The sametime chat window does show the status icon, right next to a users name, if you have telephony integration it will even show the telephone status.

Check you haven't hidden the business card, View, Show, Business Card.

Are you talking about Notes Basic Client? Don't expect any enhancements to be made to that.

I am using lotus notes client 8.5.3 (Sametime embedded). I dont see the status icon next to the user name in chat window (not sametime contact list). Am i missing any settings?

Yes you're missing something, most likely, you have the business card disabled.

When you have a chat window open, in the menu select, View, Show, and make sure business card is selected.

Do you see any other business card information and just missing the status details? If just missing the status icon, then I would say you've got a bad client install, or a bad plug-in that is messing with your status. Either way, this is a core feature of the product.
