Portal: Escape Into Nature

Imagine being able to escape into nature whenever you need, whether you're struggling to sleep, finding it difficult to concentrate or you're stressed and anxious.

Portal transforms your surroundings and transports you to some of the most peaceful and awe-inspiring places on the planet, reconnecting you with nature.

That's the experience we've set out to create, combining immersive high-fidelity 3D sounds, ultra-high definition motion visuals and smart lighting integration to create an immersive ambient experience unlike any other

- Wake up to the dawn chorus at Lake Bled, Slovenia,
- Maintain your focus and flow surrounded by the rumble of an Amazon thunderstorm,
- Meditate beside the Pacific Ocean in Hawaii,
- Draw inspiration from high up in the Himalayan mountains,
- Unwind to the sound of lapping waves and the sea breeze rustling the palm leaves overhead on Thailand's Laguna Beach, and
- Drift off in the shadow of Mount Fuji to the tranquillity of Japan's Lake Kawaguchi.

No voices – just the sounds of nature to help you unwind and drift off around the world. Portal's sleep timer allows you to put down your device for the night and drift off without a care in the world.

Allow the sounds of nature and the gradually brightening glow from Portal smart lighting integration to gently rouse you from your sleep for a more natural, energising, mood enhancing start to your day.

Work productively from anywhere by replacing noise and distraction with nature. Portal's focus timer (a simplified pomodoro timer) will help you stay in flow throughout your day.

Escape the confines of your four walls and be inspired by a growing library of portals to 44 different beautiful locations from around the world. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, "not all those who wander are lost".

Escape to your own quiet corner of the world to relax, meditate and unwind. Portal's breathing exercises help you control stress, lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety in even the craziest of times.

Bring your favourite audiobook, podcast, playlist or guided meditation with you wherever you portal to. Use Portal alongside other apps, to combine nature's ambience with what you love.

Our deep integration with HomeKit, Philips Hue and Nanoleaf lights will transform the mood of any space with a single tap - so effortless it feels like magic.

We're committed to delivering experiences which are liberating and make you feel truly immersed in nature. Peace of mind that there's no third-party tracking, no targeted advertising and that we don't collect your personal data is crucial. It's just you and nature.

We're a small completely independent team of creators. For us, it means we can take a stance on things we and our customers feel deeply passionate about and in doing so continue to build something we're truly proud of.

What's new in version 3.4.1
Immersive lighting just got a massive upgrade with the introduction of HomeKit, Nanoleaf, multi-colour & multi-zone support!

We love delivering immersive experiences that whisk you away to peaceful corners of the world. Our lighting integration plays an important role in shaping that experience, helping capture the feel and mood of a place. Until now we’ve only been able to share this with the Philips Hue community…this release changes that and also introduces some much requested new features and improvements.

* New Features *

Nanoleaf & HomeKit Support.
Effortlessly connect your Nanoleaf and HomeKit compatible lights. Just tap to sync - so simple it feels like magic!

Harmonise A Symphony Of Lights.
Sync your Philips Hue, Nanoleaf and HomeKit lights in perfect harmony with each other - across multiple rooms and even multiple lighting connections. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Multi-Colour Immersion.
If you sync multiple lights you’ll now enjoy a spectrum of colour that conveys the feel and mood of your chosen escape.

* Improvements *

- Wakeup alarm lighting now matches your chosen wakeup portal.
- Improved lighting connection stability to handle more edge cases and syncing issues.


v3.4.1 includes the following additional changes:

- A new setting to customise what should happen if you have lights that are not able to render multiple colours is now available at: Settings > Lighting > White Light Behaviour.

- Lights no longer un-sync when entering the library. Now they remain synced with the last active portal.

- Nanoleaf zones now attempt to find a matching icon based on the zone name rather than always showing the Nanoleaf logo.

- To avoid confusion the zone select screen now makes it clear when some but not all connections in a grouped zone are selected.

- We've improved our FAQ to make it faster to find the information you need and easier for us to keep updated.

- Fix the brightness calculation for Philips Hue lights that could lead to some scenes appearing too dim.

- Nanoleaf panels now always correctly un-sync to their powered off state if that is where they started from.

- Connections that are unreachable when loading the zones list no-longer block it from loading, they now show a warning message below the list of available zones.

- The "Tap to Preview" audio volume in the alarm settings now works when audio is paused globally.


Thank you to everyone who suggested these features and improvements - your enthusiasm and encouragement has been amazing! We hope you thoroughly enjoy them.
