Facebook, recently reborn as Meta, makes some pretty great hardware in the form of the Portal lineup of smart displays. These Meta Portable smart home devices have the capability to deliver high quality video conferencing, as well as Alexa speakers rolled into one. You can score the basic 10-inch Meta Portal for an astonishingly affordable $35 this fine Prime Day (opens in new tab).

Since Meta will no longer continue its fantastic video calling displays, this is probably your last chance of grabbing a Portal before it's gone forever. With popular social media apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, and Zoom built-in, Portal devices handle video communication like no other. 

You also get access to a multitude of other services such as audio streaming platforms, time and weather widgets, and more. The larger 14-inch screen on the Meta Portal Plus takes full advantage of these features, especially when the display is used as a live photo frame.

Equipped with premium add-ons like stereo speakers, a physical camera shutter for privacy, and the ability to pan and tilt to follow your movements, the Meta Portal Plus is a fantastic device. This Prime Day deal brings the cost of the Portal Plus down by 24% (opens in new tab), saving you $83 of dough. Then there's the Portal Go with an on-device battery, which is discounted to $129 (opens in new tab) at the moment. You don't want to miss this opportunity!
