The Generation 1 Portal by Facebook is the only model receiving a $100 discount today, so you'll want to keep that in mind while shopping. This 10.1-inch device lets you easily video call other Portal users, or even just Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp users, using its built-in apps. The Smart Camera tracks you and adjusts to follow you around, meaning you could, for instance, chat with your parents while cooking dinner, or hang out with long-distance relatives while they open up their birthday presents. It features Alexa built-in so you can control your smart home, check who's at the front door, listen to your favorite music, and more hands-free. When not in use, it can also be used as a digital photo frame showing you your favorite Instagram photos
Other models of the Portal are available too, though you won't find them priced as low as the Generation 1 version. The Portal Mini is usually the most affordable option, regularly priced at $129. However, it's slightly sm aller at 8 inches comparatively. Meanwhile, the larger, 10-inch PortalPortal Plus which makes for an even nicer pickup with its 15.6-inch display. You can mix and match the devices you buy and they'll all communicate well together regardless of the sizes you go for. Plus, Facebook is currently offering an extra $50 off when you buy any two devices.
If you have any privacy concerns, note that Facebook doesn't listen to, view, or keep the contents of your Portal video calls. Every call is encrypted, and you can easily block the camera with the included cover or disable the camera and microphone with a single tap. You must have a Facebook account to use Portal devices, though not everyone on the call has to have a Portal device thankfully. They can use their own device and its built-in camera and microphone to begin chatting with you.
