Thanks to the flood of new video screen gadgets on the market, we don’t have to miss any gatherings or important meetings since we're all just a Zoom call away. And if you want your next video call to be crystal clear, you can grab the Facebook Portal touchscreen device from Amazon for less than $100.

With over 9000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating, the Facebook Portal keeps you connected with loved ones and the world around you at your comfort level. The camera lets you video call people through Messenger, Zoom, or Whatsapp and adjusts to fit everyone into the frame. Those on the call will be heard loud and clear since the microphone tunes out annoying background noise, and you'll be able to fit up to 50 people in a call through Messenger Rooms. If you’re separated by distance from your children or grandchildren, try out Story Time to bring bedtime stories to life with built-in AR effects.

Besides communicating through video calls, you can connect with the broader world in various other ways with Facebook Portal. Connect to apps like Spotify, Food Network, and Sling TV to listen to the news, check out recent recipes, and listen to your favorite podcasts, all-hands free with the built-in Alexa feature. You can also switch off the microphone and camera whenever you want and know that your calls are always encrypted for your protection. 

Though the Facebook Portal 10-inch Touchscreen is usually $179, you can get it for less than $100 on Amazon.
