And once you've exhausted yourself of selfies, check out the rest of the Google Arts and Culture app; through it, you can do things like zoom in on fantastic masterpieces to see all of their incredible details. The free Google Arts & Culture app has become the top app for iOS and Android as users seek out to find a photo that matches a selfie they take. Oh what price vanity, etc etc... Google seems to have lent a keen year and is going to make the entire affair of finding your "Museum" doppelganger easier with the "Google Arts & Culture app".

We understand that's because it's still experimental and has been region-blocked - specifically it's limited to the United States right now.

After downloading the app, you'll have to scroll down to the section that reads "Is your portrait in a museum?" Tap "get started", and you'll be guided through the process. While this might actually sound pretty straightforward it actually isn't. The app matches users selfies to famous paintings.


To use the feature is simple. Google uses computer vision technology to compare your selfie to thousands of historical artworks provided by its partner museums to see if any look like you. The bonus is that the app ranks every match with a percentage that tells you to what extent your face matches to the one in the portrait. Take a selfie, upload it, and based on your pose and sometimes the accessories you have on, it will determine which is the closest works of art that resemble you or at least your picture at that time.

If you've watched any of your friend's Instagram Stories over the last week, you've probably run into the Google Arts and Culture app a.k.a.
