Introducing GoToMeeting as the First Video Conferencing Solution for Facebook's PortalTV! - GotoMeeting


Nearly one year ago, the world embarked on a full-time remote work experiment in the wake of COVID-19. How is it that time both flies by and yet seems to stand still? 

Unsurprising to no one, being confined to our home offices, kitchen counters and couches quickly became exhausting – not to mention terrible for our posture. No matter how many monitors you have, how comfortable your chair is, or how amazing that home-brewed coffee tastes, sometimes you just crave a change of sceneryAnd while it’s cold out now in the northern hemisphere, walking meetings have become more of a challenge; though I still highly recommend them.  

Back in August, we announced that the GoToMeeting application was going to be available on the Portal Mini, Portal and Portal+ from Facebook. Portal allows GoToMeeting users to have high-quality video experiences throughout their homes.

Today, we’re extending this flexibility as the first video meeting solution on the Portal TV! Now, you’re able to take advantage of a Portal TV’s amazingly smooth Smart Camera – which automatically pans and zooms to keep you in frame – and high-quality sound, from your large television, all from the comfort of your comfy sofa!

I can speak from personal experience that the change of scenery for my GoTo work meetings was very welcomed. Additionally, using Portal TV and GoToMeeting for personal get-togethers with family and friends, like I did for a virtual New Year’s Eve party, was so much better than huddling around a laptop to cheers an adios to 2020 with friends. 

With an affordable price point, simple setup and amazing technology, Portal TV is a game changer for the family room or home office.
