Your Portal contacts are the Facebook friends and Messenger connections of all accounts linked to your Portal. Adding or removing a Facebook account to your Portal will add or remove the contacts associated with that accounts.
Contacts who have a green dot next to their name are recently active on their Portal, Messenger or Facebook.
With Portal, you can make and receive calls to and from your Facebook friends and Messenger connections.
You can hide a suggested or recent contact from the Home screen of your Portal.
You can create or edit custom nicknames for your Portal contacts.
During a call you can move and talk freely while Portal's Smart Camera and Smart Sound will adjust to keep you audible and in the frame, or manually adjust the zoom and focus of your camera using gestures on your Portal's touch screen.
If you've added friends to the Family and Relationships section of your Facebook profile, you can call them on Portal using voice controls and your relationship name (or common synonyms for those names).
The Incoming Call Settings allows you to set when you receive incoming calls on Portal or the Messenger app, based on your location.
During a call, you can use Story Time by tapping + and then tapping Story Time.
