Facebook reported to be developing a video chat device

Facebook is currently developing a โ€œvideo chat deviceโ€ designed for use in the home, according to a new report. The product, which could be announced next spring, includes a large touchscreen, wide-angle camera, microphones, and speakers.

One version in testing measures between 13 and 15 inches โ€” the size of most laptops. The company is reportedly exploring the idea of running a version of Android on the device.

Reports also mentionย that Facebook wants to use artificial intelligence for advanced camera features including one that would โ€œscan for people in its range and lock onto them.โ€
