  • Not the best smart home device
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MannyCSTX - December 1, 2018

    I purchased this portal plus because the commercials showed all the incredible features it can do. Wrong. You can’t ask it for recipes like you can on the echo or google devices. You have to use the food network app and use their recipes. It has Alexa, but it doesn’t display information on the screen like the Echo Show does. Their App Store has about 5 apps. It doesn’t even support YouTube. You have to use a mobile browser version of it. On the plus side, if you’re using this solely for video messaging reasons and you use Facebook to do it, this would be the perfect device for you. But unfortunately, that’s the only thing this device excels at.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Wonderful for keeping in touch from long distances
    Reviewed by AMOMSIMPRESSION - December 1, 2018

    We received this device as part of a blogger campaign and have been really impressed with it. If you are like me and you live far away from your family, this may be something that would be perfect for you. Using this device is certainly much better than video chatting on a phone or tablet. Also, it should be noted that you don’t have to call another Portal device for it to work. You can connect on messenger easily on any other phone or tablet. We love how easy it was to set-up and how the camera follows the person around the room. It is truly hands off. I think it is perfect for grandparents who live far away to chat with their grandkids.

  • Nice to keep in touch but concerns about privacy
    Verified BuyerReviewed by sunflower63 - June 24, 2021

    Bought this to stay in touch better with my parents in the winter when I am in Florida and they are up north. Relatively easy to set up. Was a bit unsettled when I wanted to connect it to my music program and it wanted permission to not only access my music and preferences but also to make unauthorized changes. It is a bit too invasive of my personal privacy in unwarranted areas. It is nice to keep in touch but have some concerns about privacy. Also, unless I have not accessed it properly, it does take pictures from my Facebook account and can be used as a "picture frame" but I would prefer being able to use a USB drive to load preferred pictures to view.
