Facebook has been working for a long period of business expansion in the global hardware sector. The social network has already opened the virtual reality headset. However, the company is going to unveil a video chat product called ‘Portal’. The product will compete with Amazon’s echo-show and Google Assistant’s supported touchscreen. The portal may be unveiled next May. This will be the first hardware product in Facebook’s 8th Lab, which will see the face of the company’s annual developer conference F8. Facebook has not officially said anything about the product. According to various websites, the device will be sold at $ 499.
In the consumer electronics show, Amazon unveiled the new Smart Speaker echo-show and Google Virtual Assistant supported new smart speakers. The Portal will compete with these two devices in the global market. The portal will be able to stream video of Spotify and Netflix
