Definition: Facebook Portal


A video calling tablet-like device from Facebook that was introduced in 2018. Communicating with other Portal or Facebook Messenger members, the camera follows the callers as long as they keep within a 140 degree periphery. The unit's four microphones filter out unwanted background noise, and Amazon's Alexa is also built in. See Facebook.
