Facebook launches Portal auto-zooming video chat screens

11 Octobre 2018

"That being said, while transparency is important, transparency alone will not rebuild trust and there will need to be significant demonstrated progress in their security and privacy initiatives before trust is restored, if it even can be". Most users may not want to install the device in their living rooms where the service is most needed. That isn't all as users will also have the option to sync tune from Pandora or Spotify that they might be listening to. "It's going to make it so that we can create all kinds of things that until today have only been possible in the digital world, and we're going to be able to interact with them and explore them together".

How do the Portals work? The Portal and Portal+ camera automatically follows and reframes you during a video chat. The Portal conversations stay between you and the people you're calling.

Facebook's previous hardware, including its Oculus virtual reality headset and a phone developed with HTC, gained little adoption. More on, Story Time brings stories to life with custom sound effects and visuals.

Portal runs on the open-source version of Google's Android mobile operating system, similar to many Amazon devices. The first gadget is Portal 10.1 inches and the second gadget is Portal Plus size of 15.6 inches and the other side both come with the same custom processor and software, but couldn't look more different from outside.

The smaller 10-inch, 720p screen comes with two speakers, and goes on sale next month for $199.

What are their privacy features? A cover can also block the camera, and the device also has a button to disable both the lens and the microphone. You can also use the touchscreen to start a call.

Mark Zuckerberg noticed that everyone is talking about how Facebook Portal is eavesdropping on their conversations and he decided to make the following statement: "Facebook Portal doesn't listen to, view, or keep the contents of your Portal video calls".

And while the call data is digitally scrambled to make it hard to hack, the encryption method used is not "end-to-end". You can also use Amazon Prime music streaming on the device.

In my eyes, video conferencing on these services offers an opportunity to connect. Bosworth said, "Frankly if we don't build the hardware, I do have concerns". Facebook doesn't listen to, view, or keep the contents of your calls in any way.

For now, the firm has opted not to provide access to its Facebook or Instagram News Feeds or to provide an app store for other third-party products. Four million people who chose to share their information with myPersonality, a personality quiz app that was mostly active prior to 2012, will be notified via their profiles, the social-media giant said.

Is there a gap in the market for this?

Studies suggest there's room for Facebook in the market for smart-home devices.

About 32 percent of USA consumers own a smart speaker, but another 16 percent plan to buy one by the end of 2018, according to an Adobe Analytics survey released last month.
