How do I create or edit a custom nickname on Portal TV?

This article applies to:Portal TV

To create or edit a custom nickname:

  1. From Home, select Contacts.
  2. Select the contact you’d like to rename.
  3. Select More.
  4. Select Add Nickname.
  5. Add a custom nickname using the onscreen keyboard.
  6. Select Save. You can now call the contact using their custom nickname by saying “Hey Portal, call [nickname].”

Currently, “Hey Portal” is only available in English (US/Canada), and will be disabled if you select any language other than English (US/Canada) as your preferred language on your Portal. You can still make calls on your Portal using the touch screen, and we're hard at work to add “Hey Portal” functionality in additional languages. See portal.facebook.com/usage for more information.
