Facebook Portal Devices Can Now Work With WhatsApp Login

Facebook’s latest Portal update also brings a lot of other new features, apart from WhatsApp login

HIGHLIGHTS
  • The update brings Mic Drop to let you sing along with popular song clips
  • A feature called Photo Booth is coming to Portal TV
  • Facebook said it is also adding access to thousands of shows and movies

Facebook’s video calling device Portal will now work with just a WhatsApp account, allowing users to make video calls to friends and family and access features like “Story Time” even if they don’t have a Facebook account. “Story Time” lets you bring children’s stories to life with Augmented Reality (AR) effects that change your appearance to match the characters.

“We’re adding new renditions of classic stories, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, plus new tales from Llama Llama, Pete the Cat and Otto,” Facebook said in a statement late Tuesday.

With Workplace on Portal, you can collaborate more effectively, building strong relationships with your co-workers, regardless of distance.

Portal TV brings the Portal experience to the biggest screen in people’s homes.

“Today’s update includes a number of new features for Portal TV. First up is Mic Drop, which lets you sing along with popular song clips and perform them on an AR stage during a call,” sai
