How about enjoying dinner while having a hands-free video call with the loved ones? Sounds great, isn’t it? Yes, you can enjoy such moments with the cutting edge person tracking technology of the Facebook Portal Smart Display. With this Facebook device, you no longer need to point the camera as it keeps up with the person tracking automatically. This smart display will also take augmented reality video games for your kids to a different level. Here we begin our list with this amazingly smart display from the tech giant itself. You can enjoy some smart display features as this Facebook Portal comes with the built-in Amazon-Alexa functionality.
Enjoy Smart Video Calling
Enjoy your video calling experience with your FnF on a fairly large screen using the popular apps Whatsapp and Messenger. Its smart camera pans and zooms automatically to conform to the movements. Now move hands-free while staying always in the frame. Now you get to remotely see the kids playing while being busy with some other stuff like having dinner or doing household chores. Your privacy stays protected as all the video calls maintain end-to-end encryption. If you don’ want to use the camera or the microphone simply disable them or block the lens using the camera cover.
Amazon Alexa Enabled
Now explore the world of the smart display with the Facebook Portal as this device comes with built-in Alexa-enabled functionality. Now talk to Alexa to make the most out of the smart display. Just simply provide a voice forwarding that makes Alexa play your music, control your smart home devices, read the news for you, provide different information, and do other Alexa-kind of stuff.
Ease of Use
Setting up this portal is as easy as you like. This smart display is powered by Facebook so you can simply set up this portal with a Facebook or WhatsApp account. All you need to do is plug in the device and connect it to an active wifi connection. And there you go for the ultimate digital experience.
This redesigned portal comes with 10” HD LED touch-screen in a new sleek frame. You can do lots of smart things with its built-in Alexa. Like you can check out who’s there at the door, or let the kids enjoy their fav stories with the Story Time’s animation, music, and AR effects. This display can also get you reminded of your loved ones’ birthday or show you if the contacts are available for connection, and do much more.
The Facebook Portal is the second attempt by Facebook for delivering an in-home smart display. It consists of mixed reviews. When it comes to smart video calling it leaves with no competition for its competitor. But it lacks behind its competitors regarding the Alexa related features. Facebook is yet to register as a big name as a hardware manufacturer but it is certainly showing a great intent to rule the business of Oculus virtual reality with these portals.
Now you are good to make an informed choice whether to go for the standalone video calling experience and some AR fun features of this Face Portal Smart Display or go with other smart displays that have more functional advanced Alexa features.
