You can have up to 4 accounts linked to your Portal TV. The accounts you add must be Facebook friends with an account already connected to your Portal TV. Your Portal contacts are the Facebook friends, Messenger connections and WhatsApp contacts of all accounts linked to your Portal. With Portal, you can make and receive calls to and from your Facebook friends, Messenger connections and WhatsApp contacts. You can add or remove photos by tapping the toggle next to any albums or photo collections listed in the display settings menu. When you're not on a call, you can display photos of you and your friends and family on your Portal. You can remove apps from your Portal home screen by pressing and holding on the app, selecting the X on the app you'd like to remove and tapping Done to save your edits. After you set up your Portal, you'll have a selection of apps already installed and a selection of apps available for download.
