Google App Finds Your Fine Art Lookalike

Is your portrait in a museum? Texans may never know

Users should download the app on the App Store or Google Play store first.

While this tool came out in December, the app now sits in the number 1 rank of the Google Play and iOS App Store charts after the selfie-matching feature gained popularity on social media. However, Google has restricted the feature to some locations. Do not open the app before the next step.

The Google Arts & Culture app works on a wide variety of iPhone and Android phone, as well as other iOS and Android devices.

Explaining why the app is not available outside the app, a Google spokesperson told The Sun, "This is an experiment that's only available in parts of the U.S. right now, but we're glad people are having so much fun matching their selfies to works of art".

Google App Finds Your Fine Art Lookalike

When Google updated their Arts & Culture app in December, they added a feature that takes users' selfies and match them to the portraits in their database of artwork. In our case, this did not work with the Opera VPN app, though the Express VPN worked fine.

Once this is done, open the Google Arts & Culture app and start scrolling down on the main feed.

Some of the matches are spot on, while others are hilariously off. Celebrities including Kumail Nanjiani, Amanda Seyfried and Kate Hudson helped spread the word about the app which went viral over the Martin Luther King Jr. The section says " Is your Portrait in a museum?". We're hopeful this Google is just refining this experiment before it launches across the country - but the fine art selfie craze could be over before everyone has access.

The Google Arts & Culture app comes in quite handy for those interested in viewing exhibits from global museums, institutions and galleries around the world. The company said it won't use data from photos for any other goal but to match it with images in its catalog. The app would need access to the front camera to click a photo. Google says it will delete the image after the match is complete. Be warned, the results might not always be the most appealing.
