People are sharing their fine arts match. You might as well too.
It’s time for this app to get it’s 15 minutes of fame. Oddly enough, it’s not a new app, but a new feature has made it one of the most popular shares on social media this week. The app is the quite boringly named Google Arts & Culture. It’s a fine app for the art lover, but really, a very lackluster design for an app focused on fine art. The Google Play Store description follows,
Keep exploring with Google Arts & Culture. Meet the people, visit the places and learn about the events that shaped our world. Discover collections curated by experts from the most famous museums. Be moved by stories depicted in thousands of photos, videos, manuscripts and artworks on every type of screen and in virtual reality. Find your favorite artworks, create your own collections and share them with friends.
Google Arts & Culture has collaborated with over 1,200 international museums, galleries and institutions from 70 countries to make their exhibits available for everyone online.
But none of that is what has got people playing with the app. That is due to a new fun feature which has overshadowed the main purpose of the app. The app allows the user to take a selfie, and then the app will search for your match from it’s catalogue of museum artwork.
Well, the app isn’t perfect. But it could have been worse.
The new functionality isn’t available in all regions, but if you’d like to give it a try yourself, you can grab the app from the Google Play Store now.
