Facebook has created a new type of video chat to make users feel even more connected with family and friends.

On Monday, the company announced two new devices, the Portal and Portal+.

Facebook says these video communication devices will change the way people keep in touch. "Thanks to AI technology, Portal makes video calling easier and more like hanging out, while a widescreen display lets you enjoy every moment together. When you can’t be there, Portal and Portal+ let you feel there," Facebook said.

Both devices are available for preorder now for $199 and $349.
