"Google Arts and Culture" App Finds Your Famous Art Doppelgänger

It's now no. 1 on both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. We here at Select All wouldn't want you to feel left out - unless you live outside the United States, in which case you're going to be left out, since the feature is now only available in the United States - so here's a very quick explainer on how to use the app.

The Google Arts & Culture app also offers the ability to experience artworks from institutions around the world.

Yes indeed, the Google Arts and Culture app has turned into something of a viral sensation since this update launched, with many people sharing their matches on sites like Twitter and Instagram.

Boosting posts may not be included in the best practices textbook, but say you're a business owner and need to ... You can use it to see photos, videos, manuscripts, and art on every screen and in VR. It doesn't allow you to upload a previous-taken selfie yet, so for now you must take one through the app. It's also very shareable. Google uses computer vision technology to compare your selfie to thousands of historical artworks provided by its partner museums to see if any look like you. Some fine art look-alikes are more accurate than others, of course, and the app displays a percentage that indicates just how alike the selfie and painting are.

After downloading the app, you'll have to scroll down to the section that reads "Is your portrait in a museum?"

Tap on the Get Started button (or swipe up).

Grant permission to your camera and photos. However, none of my results returned with a higher than a 45 percent match. Unsurprisingly, this new functionality has taken the internet by storm, receiving a lot of attention on social media over the weekend.
