Google Museum Arts, Culture App: How To Find Your Portrait Face Match

Google's app, one of many from the internet giant, is created to introduce the world to fine art, but a feature that's not prominently displayed now allows users to take a selfie, and compare themselves to works of great art.

Google's tool for finding your art historical doppelgänger is certainly the most ambitious app of its kind, it is not unprecedented.

When I first opened the app, I didn't really know what to do or where to go. So much so that it became the most downloaded free app on the Apple App Store in the USA, according to app analytics tracker App Annie. The new selfie feature uses Google's face-matching technology to match your photo to "similar" looking portraits from a database of over 70,000 works. The Google Arts and Culture app helps users explore museums, learn about famous artists and has details on art projects.

Though the viral new feature is restricted to the U.S., it can be accessed through VPNs in other regions as well.

Google App Finds Your Fine Art Lookalike: How to Use It

Google's Arts & Culture app has been available since 2016 but it didn't zoom to the number one spot on the app charts until it released the new "Is your portrait in a museum" feature, in which you upload a selfie and Google scans its curated archives of gallery and museum collections to match your face with a classic work of art. Once installed, open the Opera VPN app. Click on "Switch location" under the Device Location tab, and select United States from the list. You may need to tap through some menus to give the app access to your camera. It's now no. 1 on both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

Get the app, and scroll down to find the "Is your face in a museum?" project.

After taking the selfie, the system looks for the art twin.

The only way you could have missed the onslaught of front-facing photographs side-by-side with paintings from Spain to France - and beyond - is if you happened to ignore social media.
