Similar to computer, tablet or phone screens, Portal devices range from hand-held to computer- and TV-sized screens; one device even lets customers connect their existing TVs to Portal.
Portal's devices use smart cameras that provide auto camera focus for video calling, sound focus, TV-sharing and augmented reality features.
Amazon's Alexa is also featured on Portal's devices so users can use a voice-command function while using their devices to watch the news, surf the web, play music, set a timer, check security cameras and more.

Apps available on Portal devices include Spotify, Amazon Prime, Showtime, ABC News, Sling, CBS, Food Network and Words with Friends. Additionally, Portal offers its own app so users can connect their phones to their devices.
Portal devices can also connect to Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp so those who do not have Portal can connect with Portal users.
