Some users were irked by the bigger screen, which they deemed cumbersome, so Skype now offers a compact view for calls.

After Skype launched the first beta of Skype 4.0 for Windows June 18, several users complained about the default full-screen view, lost instant messages and the loss of group contacts capabilities. Skype listened to feedback from 50,000 users and made some changes to improve the popular VOIP platform for customers. The changes roll out Oct. 1 for users; eWEEK has a preview of some screenshots ahead of the launch.
