Dedicated smart screens within consumer homes are becoming more of a reality as we see solutions like the Facebook 'Portal' be introduced. Developed by the social media company as a competitor to solutions like the Amazon Echo Show, the device comes in two model variations including one with a 10 inch screen and another with a 15.6 screen. Each one is capable of performing video calls, playing music through your favorite streaming service, chatting with friends via Facebook Messenger and much more.

The Facebook 'Portal' is outfitted with an impressive camera system for video calls that will automatically detect various people in the room and focus on them, while also shifting to wide-angle mode to get everyone in the picture.
