Google Arts & Culture App Now Matches Your Selfie To Famous Paintings

'Face match' makes Google Arts & Culture most downloaded free app on US App Store Google App Finds Your Fine Art Lookalike: How to Use It

When a person submits a photograph to the app, it's sent to Google - but not stored, they claim - so an algorithm can sift through thousands of works of art to see "if any look like you", the company explains. Discover collections curated by experts from the most famous museums.

Google spokesman Patrick Lenihan told The Washington Post that the feature was an idea someone had a year ago and was incorporated into the app with little fanfare.

If you live somewhere that doesn't have access to the feature just yet, a good way to stay aware of when it's coming your way is by following the Google Arts & Culture account on Twitter. You won't find it if you live in Houston: Because Google still considers it experimental, the viral feature is blocked in certain regions-ours included. However, do not open the app immediately after downloading.

Wrong woman killed in murder-for-hire plot over alleged love triangle
Ishnar Marie Lopez, Alexis Ramos and Glorianmarie Quinones Montes are being held in the Osceola County Jail on murder charges. That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.

This is thanks to the new feature that Google added to it, which basically allowed users to take selfies of themselves and then compare.

Next, download a VPN app, where it is possible to switch location and choose United States of America as the option. The "selfie matching" feature should appear, provided your VPN is working. Once it's installed, fire it up and scroll down until you see "Is your portrait in a museum?" She took a look at Elise's results and said at first glance, they didn't seem impressive. The company also says it will not use data from the photo for any other goal, and will only store the photo for the time it takes to search for matches. It was not until last weekend that Google Arts & Culture started being downloaded and talked about en masse, courtesy a new update. You may need to tap through some menus to give the app access to your camera. The results are not always great, matching around 53 percent or less at times, but they are nearly instantaneous.

People are using an app to figure out if their faces are imitations of images already immortalized on canvas.
