Back in 2016, Google released Arts & Culture app for Android and iOS, which provides access to a database of works of art from museums in 70 countries. And in January 2018, there was an update that quickly made the software go viral.
About the app
A fun feature asks users "Is your portrait in a museum?" and compares their selfie with 70 thousand works of great artists and sculptors. Interestingly, the application uses the face recognition algorithms developed by Google to find the user's doppelganger.
