Facebook to reportedly release an Echo Show competitor with facial recognition

Facebook wants you to video chat on its platform, so it’s taking on Amazon, Google, and Apple with hardware of its own. 

The company will release Portal later this year, Cheddar learned in an exclusive report. It will be something like Amazon’s Echo Show, a voice-controlled smart speaker with a screen.

Reports about the video chat device came out last year, but more details — like the name “Portal” — have now been revealed. It looks like a speaker patent discovered last year is part of the Portal project.
