A:AnswerHi, you don’t need to have 2 portals. You will be able to video call his portal using Facebook messenger on your phone and he will be able to do the same thru the portal. Once you turn it on you just put in his Facebook name and password and he will see a slide show of all his pics as well as any he gets tagged in and he will be able to video call anyone of his Facebook friends by just saying “portal call ...”
A:AnswerWifi yes.. and also they need a Facebook account to receive a Facebook video call. If they have facebook .. u can do a "shared" picture album where u invite them to a closed group and u both can upload pics from your phone and then it gets shown on yout portal..its pretty neat to display all those pics u taken on your phone and now u can see them on this device
A:AnswerIt’s VERY simple. You have messenger with Facebook. Once the portal is setup.... your mom world be able to talk with anyone that has a Facebook messenger account. She would say, “Hey Portal....call (name) and it calls the person. To answer she e would just touch the button on the screen. Very simple. We bought it for our aunt that has dementia. We just made a sign that says, “Hey portal call .....(list of names). Easy!
A:AnswerYes there has to be a facebook account. We created an email and then a FB account and then sent friend requests to family only. Then added them on the portal. When it is in sleep mode one touch to bring up contacts, one touch on the person they want to call and one touch on the video icon to start the call. We have had pretty good success with it. He loves it because he can see his great grandchildren and his son.
A:Answeryes..... you do have to have a Facebook account.... but to my understanding, if you have both parties have the "Whats app" account you should chat and videos chat... i guess it is like the MSN messenger idea... i have not tested this to know for sure.... give it a try, it could be a lot less hassle in doing with a Facebook account in setting up... I hope this helped.. OH ya it does say this on the box of the Portal box that it will work with Whats app.
A:AnswerMy husband said it will work but it will cost you money through your phone due to the streaming and we have found mom spends more time talking with her children because she can see them. It has worked wonderfully for her but she has internet.
A:AnswerDoes not work like a regular tablet. More like a digital frame that also does video chatting and plays music apps like pandora and spotify. The power cord itself is the kickstand for the frame. Does not have a battery. Not portable.
A:AnswerHello there, thank you for reaching out regarding this!
Yes, you can install Microsoft Teams, connect your Teams account to your Portal, and you're ready to go.
Here you can find all details about how to get Teams running on your Portal: https://store.facebook.com/help/portal/articles/apps-and-photos/apps-for-work/use-microsoft-teams-on-portal/
A:Answeri gifted a portal to my parents in India and it works perfectly fine between India and US. I am not sure about South America, however I have to believe that as long they access to facebook and whats app the portal should work just fine.
