Facebook has added Zoom and GoToMeeting backing to its Portal TV product, so you can completely accept the work-from-home lifestyle and take meetings from your front room couch.
Zoom and GoToMeeting, just as BlueJeans and Webex, are as of now accessible on Facebook’s more portable Portal devices, including the standard Portal, the Portal Mini, and the Portal Plus. The new additions to the Portal TV should make it significantly more useful as a work webcam, yet in addition in the event any of your COVID-era digital hangouts happen on Zoom.
“Now, your favorite Zoom functionality extends to the largest screen in your home, so you can work from your couch as well as your desk,” reads a blog post published Tuesday. “That includes joining breakout rooms for brainstorming in smaller groups, calendar integration to help you stay on top of your schedule, screen sharing to improve remote collaboration, and virtual backgrounds to improve your overall experience.”
Facebook has been slowly working out the feature set of its Portal family of video talk gadgets. In October of a year ago, it added Netflix to the Portal TV, and the second-generation Portal and the first Portal Mini released back in 2019 added WhatsApp calling support close by more reasonable price tags.
