At a time when video chat is part of daily life, Facebook’s answer to staying connected is the recently launched range of Portal devices.  These come in the form of a device that sits on top of your TV to something that looks more like a picture frame with built in camera and speakers for chat and entertainment.

A recent update to the portal platform now gives users to stream live to Facebook pages and groups, have up to 50 people in a video call and the ability to blur your background during video chat.  You can also use Portal to make calls via WhatsApp.
