“Those electronics are not accessible from the software, so you have to be physically on the device to connect it back again,” says Rafa Camargo, vice president of the Portal hardware team.

The Echo Show debuted with a mode that lets you automatically start a video chat with a trusted contact.But the Portal also has an always-listening voice assistant for initiating calls, which needs to send voice data to Facebook’s servers to be processed.That’s all logged in your Facebook settings, too, and if you want to delete it you’ll have to do so manually.For better and for worse, you can’t even browse Facebook.The smaller Portal closely resembles Amazon’s Echo Show, while the bigger one looks like something that would take your order at a fast food restaurant.
