Google Arts & Culture app had been around for some time, it’s a simple app that offers insight into culture and art pieces, including well-written and passionate articles. But, if you wanted a history lesson, you’d go to that public book blockbuster thing everyone’s always raving about. Thankfully, Google realized this and made the app a little more exciting with a new facial recognition and matching feature.
Now, the app can take your everyday selfies and match them to famous portrait paintings. It’s gotten so popular over the last week that even celebrities are jumping on board to see who they look like.
Maybe this will be the new craze that sweeps the country, I can see it now. “oh man, I got Galileo!”. “That’s cool, but I got Margaretha Leuveling.” Hey, anything’s better than idiot kids munching on packets of laundry detergent.
Google Arts & Culture app is available to download for free on the iOS and Google app stores.
