Google presents a new feature on their Arts & Culture app this month. The feature reveals what your face could resemble a historical painting.

The Arts & Culture app went viral after people discovered the entertaining new feature. It uses Google’s collection of paintings from museum around the world. When you open the app scroll until you see the “Is your portrait in a museum?” feature. Then you tap the get started button, and it will guide you through the process of the matching. The feature is not available in Texas and Illinois, due to laws that were passed about companies using biometric data such as facial scans and fingerprints.
