Google's Arts & Culture App Helps You Find Your Art Doppelgänger

Google-Arts-and-Culture-app

Either way, the app can be downloaded for free from the app store on iOS and Android.

The Google Arts & Culture app searches a database of thousands of artworks from around the world to match up a user's selfie to a portrait hanging in a museum.

The app was originally launched in 2016 as a way to help users to look at art featured in museums across the globe without actually having to go to a museum.

The app launched November 30, 2015, as a way to offer virtual tours of over 1,000 museums, and comes with a companion that offers museum tours ("go inside the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao", in Spain, ) and contemporary pitches on art education-"Ten things you didn't know about Vincent Van Gogh".

Yes, it is a great app for art and history lovers alike, but guess what made Arts & Culture so popular lately?

Boosting posts may not be included in the best practices textbook, but say you're a business owner and need to ... 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. Once you install the app, scroll down for the "Is your portrait in a museum?" game.

The app uses computer-vision technology and machine learning to examine your face and compare it with thousands of pieces of art that are shared with Google by museums and other institutions. The popup is accompanied by "Get Started". "Guys, this app is DEAD ON", Kristen Bell captioned her side-by-side matches from the app, which included August Mann's portrait by John Pettie.

Grant permission to your camera and photos. Prima, a photo-editing app, shot to fame for turning images into paintings, complete with strokes of an artist's brush. Once you do that, you can submit your selfie, get matched, and then share it to your social media site of choice.
