The Facebook Portal is best known as an easy way to enjoy video calls with friends and family. The service is set up to use the Facebook Messenger service, allowing to make video calls to your contacts - through a large LCD screen that can sit on your kitchen or desk – or get carried from room to room. The big screen is an appeal for group chats – but it is also really popular with people who don't have a smartphone or a laptop. So if you have an elderly relative, say, who misses out on family video chats – this is the perfect device for getting them included in the conversation.

But what people don't realize, is that the Facebook Portal is a great digital photo frame – giving you a screen that can display your favorite photographs when you are not using the device for video calls.
It will allow you to make calls via Messenger or WhatsApp, but also works as an Alexa device. That means you can use this Portal to check on home security cameras, to play music, listen to the radio - and a whole lot more
This is the best offer of all the Black Friday Portal deals. This 8 inch LCD communication device is all you need to talk to distant parents, children, siblings or friends – and at this price it is a great way of keeping in touch with a simple-to-use always-ready smart home device!
