New Google feature finds your doppelganger in museum paintings

New Google feature finds your doppelganger in museum paintings

The new Portrait matching feature is region locked and the only way you can get it working is by using a VPN and setting your location to the U.S. Its also worth mentioning that the app has climbed the App Store rankings after introducing the new feature and now sits at the top. Head to the app store. Here's what you need to know about it.

There are two big problems people point to: the app doesn't work in many countries, and people are anxious that their face is being secretly transferred into a database.

You may have noticed a new viral selfie trend on social networks these days as people are putting up pictures of themselves alongside their potential artistic doppelgänger from hundreds of years ago. This is where you want to be.

Two Passenger Jets Collide on Tarmac at JFK Airport
The Port Authority told the Daily News that much of the chaos is affecting the global terminal and Terminal 4. One traveler even posted a video of a fellow passenger playing violin at their gate to pass the time.

OR knocks off No 11 Arizona State
UA shot only 37.5 percent overall and made just 2 of 11 3-pointers while turning the ball over nine times. Junior Reid Travis averages over 20 per game and just over seven rebounds to pace the Cardinal.

PLO Calls for UN-Sponsored Conference on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Even so, Abbas reaffirmed his commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Abbas said "shame on you" for Trump's claim that the Palestinians refuse to negotiate.

Step Three: Accept the terms and conditions. The company said it won't use data from photos for any other goal but to match it with images in its catalog. If this sounds agreeable, tap "I ACCEPT" in the lower, right-hand corner of the app screen. Using the built-in camera of the app, you can capture a selfie (however imperfect or weird it is) and upload it. Once downloaded, you are prompted to snap a selfie.

If you had told us last week that Google would find a way to get people interested in fine art en masse, we would've laughed in your face. Some of my options didn't really speak to me, but others - I'm particularly fond of Rembrandt Laughing - I felt really captured something. It then compares your face to thousands of pieces of art hanging in museums to find your match. While it sounds like the flawless way to plan your next vacation (who doesn't want to see their historical twin IRL), the face match technology definitely needs some work.
