This new feature of Google’s Arts & Culture app transforms picture into Classic Arts

Few years ago, Google has launched Art and Culture app but it is seen that these days people had found new interest in this Art and Culture app because the tech giant has introduced an “Art Filter” which transforms and blend people faces into the classic Art work portraits by using the technique of augmented reality.

Where in world technology regarding augmented reality is becoming more powerful tool which can be used in many dangerous ways as it uses the technique of facial recognition, while Google on other hand has its own way of using such technology to spread happiness in the form of Art Filter.

This Art and Culture app from Google is not like any common app such as snapchat which uses simple face filters but instead this app brings the art work from the museums around the world with historic importance to your device. The app allows its users to browse on more than 70,000 classical art works which are present in over 1000 museums around the world.

Google’s Arts & Culture app is available for both iOS and Android users for free. One of the main reasons for developing this app was to bring people to know about history and its importance as through this app people will not just only be able to know about classic art work of history but also about their artist and museum and everything related to it.

The latest update of Art and Culture app is the use of augmented reality (AR) in the form of Art filter which enables its users to transform to not only just in to a face filtered picture but into famous painting and historical artifacts.

Google’s Arts & Culture app has launched five very amazing filters, whose names are given below:

Self-portraits from Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo

Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring

A 19th-century Samurai helmet

A faience necklace from 14th-century Egypt

In this time of Global health crisis when going to museum where exhibitions of such classical art works are held are not feasible, Google offers this app as a platform to provide historic background and knowledge about art work that engage more people towards history in a fun way.

The algorithm used in this app is machine-based image processing which makes this filter to look more realistic. This is not the first time when Google has used augmented reality technique in such manner and certainly this would not be the last one either as Google is always keen to update its feature to make it more educational and fun loving.
