I don't understand what is so special about this app, recycling google database with another app and the main feature (why I tapped Install) is not working...

Pros:

Take a selfie and see which historical artwork you resemble

Cons:

Blocked for 90% of the countries.

Same here outside of DFW area. I thought I was losing my mind. My Instagram feed was showing so many of these that I caved and downloaded the app, but could not for the life of me find anything related to this feature.

A widely publicised feature, where you can submit a selfie and have it matched to a person in an artwork doesn't seem to be available in many places, including the US and UK. Was it a trick to get people to download the app, the cynic inside me asks?

Pros:

well organised, but curated for an american audience

Cons:

Advertised and promoted features not available in most locations

Agree. If the feature is only available in the US as they published, they should make it clear that a lot of people may not find this after downloading.

Not sure. Interesting use of AI.

Cons:

You would hope that Google had realised that when launching software you're usually doing it to an international audience...

Pros:

Nice idea for a one stop shop for arts and culture

Cons:

Killer feature selfieXartwork match does not work outside of US or 98% of the world
