Facebook's Portal goes international and gets new app
I'm excited to announce that we are going to launch portal internationally.
We're starting in Canada in June, and we're going to be rolling it out across a number of countries in Europe coming later this fall.
And as part of this Of course it's really important that we bring Whatsapp to portal.
So we're doing that, ao now you're going to be able to make video calls on both Whatsapp and Messenger on portal.
And you know what that means, that means that we're bringing end to end encryption to all video calls on portal, so now you can be sure that when you're having conversation with your friends and family, everything stays between you.
We wanted portal, to be a place where you can share photos privately, with your closest friends and family.
That's why we're building a new portal mobile app.
The portal app, will let you add photos directly to portal from your phone.
And it'll be available for download in the next few weeks.
We're adding more ways to catch up with loved ones through portal.
You'll be able to say Hey Paul good morning.
To get updates on birthdays events and more.
And through our collaboration with Amazon, we're adding more visual features and a lexis skills to part off.
Including flash briefings, smart home control, and the Amazon prime video app later this year.
Too often, to capture a special moment.
We end up missing it ourselves.
So we're also bringing Facebook Live to Portal.
With smart camera, Portal can be the cameraman for your most special moments.
You choose who you want share with.
You can go live just to your family or close friends.
And we're adding the ability to send private video messages from portal.
Like my wife and son did when they wanted to share his latest masterpiece.
Portal lets you be present with your loved ones no matter where they are Experiences like story time on portal are just one way we're using AI to create the future of your living digital living room.
