Selfies have become such an important part of our lives. You want to know how we know? Just look at how much has been invested by Snapchat and Instagram to create selfie filters, animations, and editing haha. Don’t get me wrong, I love using the dog ear filter as much as the next person, but we got to step up the game! Well turns out Google has done just that.
The Google Arts & Culture app has made taking selfies more fun! Though the app itself has been around since February 2011, allowing users to see works of art from various museums around the world, just a few days ago it was the most talked about app on social media. Turns out that the app released a new feature for users in which you can take a selfie and the system will try to find a piece of art that most accurately matches with you. It’s like finding your doppelganger… your much older, two dimensional doppelganger.
Once you take your selfie the app feature will match you with a variety of different paintings and will let you know what percent match you share; it will even include the name of the painting and where it is located around the world! Unfortunately for international users, the feature is currently only available in some parts of the US, but we are sure that Google is working on expanding its access to the feature soon. Make sure to download the app and check out who is your art twin! Check out some of the fun matches users got:

Google Arts and Culture seems fun, until you actually do it. Then, apparently, you’re a man.. with a pipe.. in a window. pic.twitter.com/GRBXmeSAse
