Portal is smart video calling with Alexa Built-in. Smart Camera automatically pans and zooms to keep up with the action and widens to keep everyone in view, so it feels like you’re in the same room even if you’re miles apart. With a wireless internet connection and active Messenger or WhatsApp account you can easily video call with friends and family using Messenger and WhatsApp, even if they don’t have Portal. With Story Time you can read along to well-loved stories with music, animation and augmented reality effects. Portal’s Superframe can display photos from Facebook, Instagram and your smartphone, and give you birthday reminders and notifications when your contacts are available to connect. Portal has front porting stereo speakers and a rear woofer for rich hi-fi sound, whether you’re in a call or listening to music.
