Description

The entire Meta Portal family is video calling designed to bring people closer.

Portal TV brings smart video calling to the biggest screen in your home and turns your TV into a smart video calling screen that’s perfect for group calls.

It’s easy to call friends and family on their smartphones and laptops with Messenger, Zoom or WhatsApp, even if they don’t have a Portal. A Smart Camera pans and zooms to get the whole room in shot and automatically adjusts to keep everyone in frame as they move and talk naturally. Smart Sound makes sure you can be heard by reducing background noise and enhancing the voice of whoever is speaking.

Portal TV’s Watch Together feature lets you enjoy Facebook Watch originals with friends like you’re all in the same room, and a growing list of partners including Prime Video, Netflix, Spotify and Pandora gives you all the entertainment you need for movie night and more.

An expanding AR library lets you blur backgrounds or add effects to liven up calls, and StoryTime uses AR, animation and music to let you tell immersive bedtime stories to loved ones anywhere in the world. And when you’re not watching or calling, Portal TV can show your favorite photos from Instagram, Facebook, or uploaded from your phone via the Portal app. With Alexa Built-in, you can control your smart home and connected devices with the sound of your voice.

Portal’s simple privacy settings mean you can easily disable the camera and microphone, or block the camera lens with a cover. All Messenger and WhatsApp and calls are encrypted.

i got one for myself to try it out, then i got one for my parents and my brother. the microphone array on this thing is insane! every now and then it picks up a little audio from the other side, but for the most part its flawless. you can whisper at it from 6 feet away and it comes across crystal clear, then speak normally and it adjusts instantly. the camera is also awesome, on par with Polycom cameras 4 times the price with none of the functionality. subject tracking works great, if not a little awkward framing at times, but still seriously impressive. i dont know how meta can sell these for so cheap, they are an amazing piece of kit. 10/10

I like the concept, but the camera is just ok. It doesn't zoom in enough to focus the face and the lighting isn't great. The device has a lot of bugs and gets stuck sometimes. I have done a hard Reboot couple of times in a month.

Way better than phone video chat apps

I bought 3 portals that attach to the tv. One for my parents in Florida, my daughter in Virginia and one for me in Rhode Island. We can all chat together on our tv screens and it is amazing!! We can all sit in our own homes without hovering over a small phone screen to chat like we are together. I absolutely love the tv portal. It moves with us and focuses on whoever is speaking. I strongly suggest this for people who have family far away.

It changes the experience of video calling. I can see my loved ones on my entire 86” TV screen without worrying about sound/video. It’s just seamless and easy to setup and use. Great product.

Very disappointed with our purchase. We bought 3 and had planned to buy 3 more. The picture quality is horrible. Very grainy and blurry.

Perfect To Stay Close To Family

5 out of 5 stars
KimS15 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Over the Christmas season, my family bought us the Facebook TV Portal since we live a few hours away. This was great because we didn't have to all cram around an iphone or ipad to be on camera. This sets up perfectly on your tv or on a tv stand. You can get everyone in the picture with no effort. It's fun to also play with the different apps. We recently purchased this for my inlaws who also live a couple of hours away. We are expecting a new baby this summer so now we can facetime with them. My inlaws are in their 70s and it was very easy to show them how to use it once everything was set up. Set up was a little tricky with them but I think it had to do with an update on Facebook.But we did get everything set up just fine. This is a great gift for family who lives far away, so you can keep in touch with them.

I purchased the Portal TV for all my children for Christmas. It is awesome to sit in my family room and chat with my kids and grandkids in their family room. We have family gatherings from three different parts of the country and it feels like we are all together in one room!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

Poor audio makes the experience sub-par

3 out of 5 stars
Geoff - 2 years ago

A convenient, stand-alone, set-top product that lets you make video calls should be one of the most valued lifestyle accessories of 2020. Portal TV partially delivers on this experience with two big detractors: 1- the audio quality is far far worse than Facetime, Hangouts, etc. with terrible echos and one-way audio. 2- the long-promised Zoom support has never arrived; if you are banking on using Portal TV for Zoom, ignore the ETAs and wait to buy until it has actually shipped.

The Portal works very well, and is super-easy to use. Zoom integration is still missing - once that’s fixed, I look forward to upgrading the rating.
