How the Cleveland Cavaliers look in the Google Arts & Culture app

A matching algorithm from Google that finds people's fine-art doppelgängers has gone viral, after it likened President Trump to a plump girl and Ed Miliband to a Renaissance Italian.

The Google Arts & Culture app comes in quite handy for those interested in viewing exhibits from worldwide museums, institutions and galleries around the world.

Using the Google app to find a doppelganger is easy, and requires just a few steps.

The Google Arts app is available everywhere in the US-except for IL and Texas. The app uses computer vision to compare each submitted selfie to its massive database of artwork to find the flawless match.

This isn't the first neat feature from Google's Arts & Culture division, as its Chrome extension allows you to set new tabs to open with a different work of art every day. If you are wondering how those users got access to that feature, we are here to help.

Missile threat mistakenly sent by Hawaii officials
The backlash from lawmakers was swift. "There needs to be tough and quick accountability and a fixed process", he tweeted . Hawaii reintroduced Cold War-era warning siren tests last month amid the potential threat of missiles from North Korea .

When Google updated their Arts & Culture app in December, they added a feature that takes users' selfies and match them to the portraits in their database of artwork.

Next, download a VPN app, where it is possible to switch location and choose U.S. as the option.

Users should then scroll down to the section that says "Is your portrait in a museum?" Tap on it, snap a selfie, let Google work its magic, and then (of course) share the results on Facebook or Instagram.

Who do you look like the most? Google wouldn't comment on when the app will begin showing up in those states and internationally. Give the app permission to access your camera when asked and take a selfie.

The only way you could have missed the onslaught of front-facing photographs side-by-side with paintings from Spain to France - and beyond - is if you happened to ignore social media. Arguably, the app should match all users with art depicting Narcissus staring into his own reflection, but hey, it looks fun.
