Throw the Best Virtual Mother's Day Party Thanks to Portal From Facebook

It's no secret that Mom deserves the best, but busy schedules, distance, and unforeseen circumstances can make it tricky to get together with her in person. This Mother's Day, go a step above sending flowers and a card and invite the whole family to an online party with Portal from Facebook.

Portal from Facebook is a series of smart devices that allows you to make video calls, interact with fun augmented reality features, and use Amazon's Alexa, if you have an Amazon account, for all your smart assistant needs. Along with its many family-friendly aspects, Portal from Facebook is equipped with Smart Camera features to keep up with the action in the room, panning and zooming to make sure your rambunctious kids are in every frame, and Smart Sound to enhance their voices and reduce background noises, making sure you never miss a word.

Portal from Facebook's interactive Story Time mode allows your mom to appear as a storybook character while reading to her grandkids, entertaining anyone in the family who looks on. The Mic Drop experience, available only on Portal TV, makes karaoke even sillier thanks to AR masks that let you dress up as famous singers as you belt out family-friendly songs. And since Portal works with Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, you can make video calls to family and friends on their smartphones or tablets even if they don't have a Portal of their own. All they need is their existing Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp account to accept the call.

When you're not using Portal from Facebook to connect with Mom from afar, it also makes a great smart assistant, allowing you to access Alexa to start timers, play music, read the weather, control other smart home devices, and more. Browse the web, play games, or access Facebook Watch using the Portal TV—there are infinite ways to entertain both yourself and your family with Portal from Facebook.
