Facebook’s Portal smart video and smart TV models combine Facebook and WhatsApp video calling with the features of Amazon Echo smart displays. Amazon slashed the prices of the latest Portal prices by taking $50 off for Black Friday.
We’ve found the best discounts on Facebook Portal deals on Amazon and put them all in one place. All of the models below have the Portal smart camera and smart sound, so the picture and audio follow the person speaking. Whether you’re buying Christmas gifts, adding to your smart home, or just starting with Alexa, each of these five deals can help you save $50.
The Facebook Portal Mini with Alexa for encrypted smart video calling with an 8-inch touch screen display enables Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp video calling in addition to Portal calls with other Portal owners. The Mini has the smallest display in the Portal lineup, but the same functions as the larger models. You can use the Portal Mini to display your photos from your smartphone, Facebook, and Instagram and view live streaming video from Alexa-compatible security cameras. This version has a black frame — see below for the white frame model. Normally $129, the Facebook Portal Mini Smart Video Calling 8-inch Touch Screen Display with Alexa Black is just $79 for this sale.
The Facebook Portal Smart with Alexa video calling 10-inch touchscreen display has identical features and functions as the 8-inch Mini version above. With this model’s larger screen, however, you don’t need to be as close to see details or read the content. Usually $179, the Facebook Portal Smart Video Calling 10-inch Touch Screen Display with Alexa, with a black frame, is $129 during the Black Friday sale.
If you’d rather use your TV for video calls, the Facebook Portal TV is the answer. You can port video and audio content to your large screen TV for single or multiple callers. This method of making video calls is much more comfortable for groups than crowding around one of the smaller screens. As with the regular Facebook Portals, Alexa is built-in so you can access your smart home devices and talk with the digital voice assistant. Regularly priced $149, the Facebook Portal TV with Alexa is just $99 during the Black Friday sale.
With the same features and functions as the black-framed version above, the white Facebook Portal Smart Video with Alexa and a 10-inch touchscreen display has front stereo speakers and a rear woofer. Ordinarily $179, the Facebook Portal Smart Video 10-inch Touch Screen Display model with Alexa is just $129 for this sale.
The white-framed Facebook Portal Mini Smart Video with Alexa has an 8-inch display and, like the other models, includes privacy features including encrypted calls and a physical sliding switch to turn off the camera and microphone when you want privacy. Instead of its usual $129 price, the white-framed, 8-inch Facebook Portal Mini Smart Video with Alexa is just $79 during this sale.
