Save $50 on the 10-inch Facebook Portal at QVC for New Year’s

Facebook Portal 10-inch 2019 AR
John Velasco / Digital Trends

New Year’s Day is fast approaching, but home office deals are still in demand as it’s still unclear how long it will take for things to go back to normal. If you’re thinking about adding a smart display to your home office but you’re not sold on any Amazon Echo deals, you should consider QVC’s offer for the Facebook Portal that slashes $50 off its original price of $200, bringing it down to just $150.

The Facebook Portal features a 10-inch touchscreen display with sharp and accurate colors, front-porting 10W speakers, a 13MP 114-degree field of view camera, and a four-microphone array, to make communication with other people as clear as possible. The device also comes with a Smart Camera and Smart Sound feature that automatically widens the field of view and enhances the microphones to make sure everyone in the room is seen and heard when in a video call. You also have the option of turning off the device’s camera and microphone for your privacy.

Amazon’s Alexa is integrated into the Facebook Portal, enabling voice commands for functions such as asking questions, playing music, and controlling your other smart home devices. Through Messenger Rooms, you can join or host a group call with up to 50 participants, and through Facebook Live you can start easy, hands-free broadcasts for family and friends.

There are also many Facebook Portal tips and tricks to maximize the smart display, including managing the Superframe settings to choose the photos that are displayed when the device is not in use, customizing calling and notifications to change how you make calls and get alerts, and trying the Story Time feature that applies filters and masks to read-alongs of popular kid stories.

If it fits your needs and budget, the Facebook Portal will be a solid addition to your home office due to its helpful features not just for work, but also for rest and recreation. QVC is offering the smart display with a $50 discount, lowering its price to just $150 from the usual $200. There’s no telling how long stocks will last though, so if you want your own Facebook Portal, you should act fast and click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.

Why you should buy a Facebook Portal this Black Friday 2021
why you should buy a facebook portal this black friday 2021

Like many of the best Black Friday deals that are already live, we're seeing a lot of outliers go live -- like Facebook's Portal devices. Facebook Portal, if you didn't already know, allows you to make video calls to family and friends, much like you would using your smartphone. The difference, of course, is that you can use the dedicated Portal device to make those calls, which come with a host of really neat features. For example, the wide-angle camera moves, pans, and zooms to keep up with you as you move around the room. It ensures that you're onscreen at all times and also creates a more interactive chat session. Grandma and Grandpa can follow your kids as they play, or even play along with them, all on streaming video chats.

There are a few different Portal devices now, beside the original. Some examples include the original Portal, a 10-inch display, Portal+ with its 14-inch display, Portal TV, and Portal Go. As you might expect, Facebook is offering some excellent deals on Portal products for Black Friday and the holidays. If you've been wanting one, now is an excellent time to buy and for an amazing price. While there are a few deals live, one of the best, right now, is for the Portal TV. Normally $149, it's just $79 with free shipping. You can check out that deal below, or keep reading for more information about the Portal video-calling devices.
