You can now immerse yourself into the theatrical world of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with the augmented reality experience exclusively on Portal.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the award-winning play written by Jack Thorne, John Tiffany and J.K. Rowling.

The play premiered back in 2016 and has also been adapted to a book script format for release.

The Harry Potter augmented reality experience lets you and up to three other friends transform yourself into characters from the play for video calls.

It also uses augmented reality to let you hang out in iconic Harry Potter locations. Such as Hogwarts Great Hall, the Ministry of Magic and the Edge of the Forbidden Forest.

There are also 12 exclusive AR masks for the most popular characters. These masks can also be utilised on Instagram and Facebook!

This AR experience and masks are powered by Facebook’s own Spark AR technology.

Portal is a video calling device from Facebook that also utilises augmented reality to help with immersion and bringing people together.
