The device is said to be in testing at the moment, including “in people’s homes”, despite still being in the prototype phase.

Facebook is also working on an Amazon Echo-like smart speaker, per Bloomberg, echoing a recent report from DigiTimes that said the speaker is on track to ship in early 2018.
Both devices will reportedly be powered by a Facebook voice assistant that functions similarly to Apple’s Siri.
