After adding support on Portal Mini, Portal, and Portal+, Facebook is now adding Zoom and GoToMeeting to Portal TV.
As more and more people shift toward remote work, we are entering a “new hybrid era of remote and office-based co-workers,” so there is a growing need for more devices to access video calling apps.
Facebook wants you to be able to use as many video conferencing tools as possible on its Portal devices. In August, the company added support for BlueJeans, GoToMeeting, Webex, and Zoom on Portal Mini, Portal, and Portal+. Now, it’s adding Zoom and GoToMeeting to Portal TV so that you can take advantage of the “largest screen in your home.”
Among the benefits of using Portal are – its Smart Camera which keeps you in the frame the whole time, and Smart Sound enhances your voice and minimizes noise. Using Portal to handle your video calls frees up your screen for other things too.
If you think a desk is passé, now you can work on your couch as well – join breakout rooms for brainstorming in smaller groups, stay up to date with calendar integration, share your screen to improve collaboration, and even use virtual backgrounds.
