Smart video calling
Enjoy smarter video calling with Portal from Facebook. Its smart camera automatically adjusts to stay with the action, whether you're moving about the kitchen or keeping up with the kids in the living room it pans, zooms and widens automatically, so you can move and talk freely while always staying in frame! If someone enters the room, it widens to keep everyone in view, and the Smart Sound enhances voices while minimising unwanted background noise.
Make calls with WhatsApp, Messenger or Zoom
Staying in touch with family and friends is easy – you can make video calls with Messenger and Whatsapp on their smartphone or tablet, even if they don't have a Portal! Add up to three people to a group call with WhatsApp, or seven with Messenger.
Stay in the know and get things done with Amazon Alexa. Enjoy voice control of your favourite music, watch the news, control your smart home, get the weather, set a timer and more. Just ask.
Privacy is important. Clear and simple settings mean you're always in control. You can easily disable the camera and microphone, and video calls are always encrypted. Portal has a sliding switch and red light so you can clearly see when the camera and microphone are off.
With Story Time, you can bring your children's favourite stories to life with music, animation and AR effects. Feel the bond of reading stories together, even if you can't be in the same room. Animated characters and imaginative masks inspired by each story help keep everyone engaged. Activate Story Time at any time during a call, then read along with on-screen text and prompts. You don't have to be on a call. You can also read Story Time stories while you're together in the same room. Share the AR magic of Story Time, even if you're sitting right next to each other.
When you're not in a call, Portal Mini can display photos from Facebook, Instagram and your phone's camera roll, give you birthday reminders and show you when friends are available to connect.
Portal Mini's display automatically adapts to ambient lighting and colour, so your photos will look great in any light.
