Amazon Prime Day 2022 is finally here with some of the year’s biggest sales and discounts. Previously, the Meta Portal (formerly Facebook Portal) 10-inch smart display was given a mind-blowing 70% off discount ahead of Prime Day, but now Amazon’s practically giving it away because it’s 80% off for Prime Day. Yes, you read that right, it’s a Prime Day tech deal you don’t want to miss.
We recently tested the best smart displays from Meta, Google, Lenovo and Amazon, and we found that the Meta Portal was one of the best. However, if it had been priced at $35 at the time, we absolutely would have named it the best overall option.

What We Love About the Meta Portal 10-Inch Smart Display
Facebook users who heavily use the social networking platform will love how it deeply integrates with everything on Facebook. From being able to place video calls to any of their friends to seeing status updates all from the home screen, the Meta Portal 10-inch smart display keeps you tuned to everything that’s happening. You’ll have fun using some of the fun filters that are available while video chatting.
Speaking of video chatting, we love how the Meta Portal 10-inch smart display’s 13-megapixel front-facing camera can actually track you around your room. That way, you’ll always stay in frame even when you’re constantly moving. This is probably why many users have put it in the kitchen, where they can continue to do some prep work for dinner — while the Meta Portal keeps them centered in the shot.
It also supports many of the popular video conferencing services that we’ve come to rely on to keep us connected to others while working from home. In fact, the Meta Portal supports Zoom, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans by Verizon, Webex and even Microsoft Teams. This is also why it makes for an ideal deskside companion.
You can even set it up with Amazon Alexa, which effectively makes it just like any other Echo Show smart display. Not only can you perform voice commands to Alexa, but you will also have access to controlling your smart home devices by either voice commands or interacting on its 10-inch HD display. With so much utility, it’s honestly hard to pass up on this offer.
