Google Arts and Culture app adds new 'face match' feature

Source YouTube

It remains unclear when it will travel the world, since Google has traditionally unveiled the new features locally before rolling them out further. Though the feature is officially restricted to U.S. only for now, that hasn't stopped people from other countries for accessing the Google Arts & Culture app's latest feature and posting their own "selfie doppelganger". Here are some steps to follow.

The app, which is available on both and, is more than a year old, but the selfie feature, according to CNN. I use it myself, and find it a refreshing change of pace from the grid that shows pages you've previously opened. Once installed, open the Opera VPN app. Click on "Switch location" under the Device Location tab, and select United States from the list. In India too, it can be accessed through VPN apps.

- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 13, 2018 This google arts and culture app is pretty unbelievable. Tap "get started", and you'll be guided through the process. Google uses its own image recognition technology to scan its vast library of museum portraits and throw up an image that most closely resembles the user. Google says it will delete the image after the match is complete. Users will have to give this app access to the front camera in order to allow the selfies. Google has partnered with museums across the world for this app. "Take a selfie and search thousands of artworks to see if any look like you", Google's inviting comment reads.

One asterisk on the app is that it's not available in all areas, as a Google Spokesperson told SFGate that the app is limited to the United States, minus IL and Texas. Be warned, the results might not always be the most appealing.
