Update (June 13, 2:55 am ET): Meta has confirmed that it will stop making new consumer-oriented Portal devices.

What you need to know

  • Meta will reportedly stop making Facebook Portal for consumers.
  • The video calling hardware will apparently be rebranded as a business-only device.
  • It is seen as a fallout of Meta’s decision to cut back on huge investments in its Reality Labs hardware division.

It looks like Meta is not only scrapping what would have been its first smartwatch. Meta’s huge Reality Labs loss in the first quarter of 2022 may be taking a heavy toll on the Facebook Portal line as well.
