Quite a buzz has been generating lately after social media users discovered a not-so new app on their phone, the Google Arts and Culture app. The app that’s been around since 2016, recently got an update that allows users to use the facial recognition feature to match their selfie to that of a famous artist.
Since its update, the app has managed to become the most downloaded on both iOS and Android, leaving other apps behind while users explore this new avenue. Even though the app has been around for a couple of years, it still offers many articles and artist features, which will probably be accessed more, now that it’s become so popular.
Check out the tweet below for how to use the Google Art and Culture app.
Guess we kicked off #MuseumSelfieDay a little early this year? 🤳
