Zoom Video Communications Inc. said Wednesday that its Zoom for Home service will expand to at-home smart display devices, including Amazon.com Inc.'s (AMZN) Echo Show, Facebook Inc.'s (FB) Portal and the Nest Hub Max from Alphabet Inc.'s (GOOGL) Google. Facebook's Portal is expected to be available to the public in September, while Zoom on Echo Show and Zoom on Nest Hub Max are expected to be available by the end of the year. "We're excited to bring Zoom to these popular devices," said Zoom Chief Product Officer Oded Gal. "It's more apparent than ever that people are looking for easy-to-use displays for their video communications needs, both professionally and personally." Zoom's stock, which slipped 0.8% in midday trading, has rocketed more than fourfold (up 304%) year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 5.1%.
