Originally priced at $179.99, the Facebook Portal is now just $79.99 (55%), saving shoppers $100 on this premium smart home display. The Facebook Portal uses Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Zoom and more to make both work and social calls.

Once the Facebook Portal is set up and connected, the camera can pan and zoom to keep you in frame and the Smart Sound minimises background noise and enhances your voice. The Facebook Portal also comes with Alexa built-in so while it’s primarily designed for video calls, it can be used as a smart display to control your smart home and other compatible devices with voice commands.

The Facebook Portal is designed to connect people and keep them communicating wherever they are. Its 10-inch touchscreen is easy to use and will display your photos when you’re done making calls. The Facebook Portal is a handy piece of kit to add to your home office as it acts as a separate dedicated calling and sharing screen that frees up more computer space. Available in black and white.

If you’d prefer to take your video calls and meetings to the big screen, take a look at the Facebook Portal TV. Designed for big screen smart video calling on your phone, tablet or TV, it’s a great addition to your smart home.

The main difference between the Facebook Portal and the Facebook Portal TV is that the Portals have built in screens and can be used anywhere in the home, as long as you’ve plugged it in. On the other hand, the Facebook Portal TV looks more like a sound bar and instead of a screen, it connects to your TV which then acts as your screen and audio system.

Right now, you can save $50 on the Facebook Portal TV at Best Buy and take your group calls and video meetings to the next level.
