You may have observed that on Google+, the chat window is in right side whereas in Gmail, the chat window is in left side. Those who are heavy Google+ users will feel this as a bit odd. They have to switch their eyes left and right to locate the chat window. Thankfully, there is a way to move the chat window to right-hand side in Gmail.
Change/Move Chat to Right-side in Gmail
You only need to do a couple of clicks to achieve this. Here’s how you can do this.
Open your Gmail, click on the Gear icon to open a drop-down menu. Click on “Settings” to open settings screen.
Select the “Labs” tab and then scroll down and find “Right-side chat” option. Alternatively, you can also type “right-side chat” in the search box which should also bring out the result.
Select “Enable” and then scroll down and click on “Save changes”.
Gmail will reload your page for once and voila, you can see that the familiar chat window will appear in the right-hand side of the screen.
This is a very convenient method to move the position of the chat window. Do try it out.
