Portal[1] is a brand of smart displays (screen-enhanced smart speakers) developed by Facebook.[2] The devices, the 10.1-inch (260 mm) Portal and the 15.6-inch (400 mm) Portal Plus (stylized as Portal+), offer video chat via Facebook Messenger, augmented by a smart-camera which can auto-zoom and follow people when they move around.[3] The devices are integrated with Amazon's voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant service Alexa.[4][5][2]

On November 8, 2018, Facebook announced the selling and shipment of both Portal and Portal Plus devices.[6]
