Facebook is taking pre-orders in the US for its new Portal and Portal+ video calling devices, at $199 and $349 respectively.

Yes, but your own hardware probably wouldn't enable all your Friends to chime in?

Android 8 will allow a conference call with multiple participants, but only the 1st person you connect with via video will display. I assume it's the same on their end. Not sure if I can switch video to a different participant while call is ongoing.
