Love the Portal, easy to install through my Facebook account. Zooms in on one subject if required and the camera can follow you round the room. Large depth of focus. A great way to keep in touch with my grandson overseas.
Portal - Great for family calls
I callsI bought this so we could connect with my daughter who is away at uni..I was fed up of us all cramming around an ipad/ iPhone and not being able to all get in the frame..portal changes all this as we see our daughter on the tv screen and we can all sit on the sofa as a family and chat to her. Dropped a star as it is expensive...but equally we have tow daughters who will be at uni for the next five years between them...so maybe a good investment!
I absolutely love the portal, my parents live aboard and it's perfect for video chatting as I can see both of them and I don't have to hold a phone.
No, South Africa isn't listed. Portal TV from Facebook is expanding and available in Canada and the US to include Australia, Britain, France, Italy, New Zealand, and Spain. Not South Africa.
I hope this helps.

The Facebook Portal will require a Facebook account for functionality as its primary purpose is to connect you and your Facebook contacts
The portal has a 'fully featured' Alexa built in which means its capable of controlling smart home devices, running routines and loading any of Alexa's tens of thousands of Skills.
If you are unhappy with how Facebook and Alexa devices handle your data then this is probably not the device for you.

We are excited to hear that your customers are interested in purchasing Portal as it is designed to help you connect with the most important people in your life and share those little everyday moments, regardless of physical distance.
The calls are made via Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, so wherever these services work, there is nothing in the way.
However, we cannot guarantee full functionality of all features.
If you sell the Portal with a UK plug, your customers can only use the Portal in Australia or Spain if they use a plug adapter.
Hope this helps!
