Portal TV: More ways to tune in
Portal TV brings the Portal experience to the biggest screen in people’s homes. Today’s update includes a number of new features for Portal TV. First up is Mic Drop, which lets you sing along with popular song clips and perform them on an AR stage during a call. With songs from the Backstreet Boys, Katy Perry, Coldplay and more, there’s a tune that’s bound to get everyone’s toes tapping. AR masks transform you into various music genre characters from a punk rocker or hippie to an ’80s rock star. Once your performance is over, you can share a GIF snapshot with your friends.
Photo Booth is coming to Portal TV, so you can snap selfies and take videos, add effects, and then share with people on Messenger from your TV. You can also send a video message if someone misses your call so you can share what’s on your mind in the moment, even when close friends and family aren’t available. You can even share photos from your Superframe feed through Messenger, so friends can see what you see and join the fun.
