Facebook is Building a Video Chat Device
This will come with a touchscreen measuring between 13″ and 15″ diagonally and might run a version of Android.
It will feature a wide-angle camera and AI-powered microphones and speakers.
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.
The new devices represent a new phase in Facebook’s hardware ambitions.
