Google Arts & Culture App Can Match Your Selfie to Fine Art

Google-Arts-and-Culture-app

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.

Because we didn't have enough pointless procrastination tools at our disposal already, Google has updated their Arts and Culture app to allow people to find their artistic doppelgänger. Simply download the app, scroll down to the box that asks, "Is your portrait in a museum?" and get started. The feature may not be available in all regions and markets though so bear that in mind.

And once you finish laughing, don't stop exploring the other features.

But when you're using the app, you don't technically have to take a selfie. Google will automatically show you which famous artwork you resemble. After that's done, you're matched with several paintings, in a variety of artistic styles, that have an essence of your looks.

Social media has blown up with people posting their results and hilarious reactions. The Google Arts and Culture app boasts a pretty large catalog of classic artwork, which helps explain. the matches where the person and the subject of the painting are eerily similar. Find out with the Google Arts and Culture app.

Google Arts and Culture is a free mobile app for iOS and Android devices as well as Cardboard and Daydream devices. Prima, a photo-editing app, shot to fame for turning images into paintings, complete with strokes of an artist's brush. The initiative today incorporates work from over thousands of museums from across 70 countries.
