Social networking site Facebook is working on a new streaming device similar to Amazon’s Fire Stick according to a Variety report.

The device will plug into TV sets and offer users access to online content. This new streaming device will be a part of the company’s Portal family of devices, which is expected to also feature a camera.

According to the report the device will sport microphones, a speaker and a camera. It is also being said that the company has reached out to Netflix, Disney and HBO for adding their content to its own streaming service.

The streaming device will run a customised version of Android. It is also being said that the device will sit on top of a TV set, which will allow users to easily video chat.
