Gmail now allows users to resize the Chat and Rooms in the web sidebar

With this update, users are now able to resize the Chat and Rooms sections in the web sidebar on Gmail to suit their needs. Google says that this feature makes it easier for Gmail users to stay on top of the most important conversations and navigate to the relevant chats faster than before. 

The Chat and Rooms sections can be easily resized by hovering over the section header and dragging up or down to make it taller or shorter. While this new Gmail web feature represents no major revolution, it’s a handy addition to have.
