Meet your match: Google app finds famous art you look like


The Google Arts & Culture app will dig through thousands of museum artworks from days gone by to see if you have a truly old-school doppelganger.

Twitter users are sharing their results online, whether or not they like the results.

The app itself came out in 2016, but this feature is new. To try it out, download the app, then scroll down to find the photo-matching game.

When it works, it works. But you might not be very flattered by the results. Women are often matched up with old-style paintings featuring men with mustaches, and many of the portraits it searches are just not especially lovely.

You can't simply upload your best-ever photo. You are supposed to take a selfie with the app and roll with however you look that particular moment.

But here's a cheat: if you have a photo you like better, the app will let you flip the camera around and photograph your photo.

The photo matching game isn't the only reason to download the app. You can also zoom into the details of famous masterpieces, take virtual tours of famous museums, browse artwork by time period and color, plus read various feature stories.

The app is available for iPhone or Android.
