Agora, we’re getting an idea of where the axe will fall, and it looks like Meta’s Portal video calling device is one of the big victims.

Employees were told on Friday that the company is scaling back on non-core hardware products, according to Reuters.

Meta had already quietly re-positioned Portal as a business only devicebut the latest reports suggest it’ll be withdrawn completely.

The beleaguered firm is also scrapping plans for two smartwatches.

Portal was released back in 2018 as a smart display focused mainly on allowing people to do video calls with each other via Facebook’s own Messenger app.

It has Alexa built-in so users could do tasks with their voice.

Meta is yet to confirm the plans.

Portanto, it’s not clear what the massive changes will mean for anyone who already owns a Portal device.

Mark Zuckerberg, 38, admitido he got the social network’s growth plan wrong last week when announcing massive lay offs, which amount to 13 per cent of its 87,000-person global workforce.

It’s the first set of broad job cuts in Meta’s 18-year history.

He described the painful move asthe most difficult changes we’ve made in Meta’s history”.

It comes as the firm has also taken a massive gamble with Zuckerberg’s metaverse Sonhe, ploughing billions into the project.

Unlike most companies, Facebook was one of the few winners during Covid as the world depended on online platforms.

But Zuckerberg admitted he was wrong to significantly increase investments, believing Meta‘s surge during the pandemic would continue.
