These are essentially video-calling devices that use Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp to call or message friends, family and colleagues. Facebook Portal is a video communication device from Facebook. These are devices that are styled to look like digital photo frames and to sit nicely in your home as a beautiful and intelligent display until the time comes to place or receive a call. The focus of these devices is very much on video calling and "putting people at the centre". Facebook hopes the Portal range of smart displays will help connect more people in your life more easily. They each have different designs aesthetics, but they're both focused on video chatting and meant to make it feel like you're in the same room with the person on the other end of the call. As we mentioned, calls can also be placed via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, so end-to-end encryption is an option.
