I have the Portal+, the largest one. It syncs with Facebook Messenger. All of the people on your friend list pictures appear on a screen and there is a green light when they are online. You simply say "Portal, call **** and it automatically dials that person and alerts them there is a video call coming in. They can accept or not but they need to be on a smartphone or computer with camera and mic. Particularly on mine where the screen is so big I can literally see most of a room and talk to whoever is there..you can also talk to a number of people in different locations at the same time who are using their smartphones (or their own Portal). It's not something I'd run out to buy but with my family distant and George's overseas it's really cool. We spoke to almost everyone face-to-face within the last couple of days.
