How to prevent auto-resizing of Zoom window in MacOS


I often want Zoom to take up half my screen. Whenever I open the chat in a meeting, instead of resizing the elements within the zoom window to create room for the chat window, the entire Zoom window resizes, adding on the width to display the chat. When I close the chat, instead of the video getting larger to fill the extra space, then entire Zoom window contracts.


How can I disable this behavior? I want the Zoom window to stay the exact same size whether I have the chat open or not.
