Google’s New App Curates Art From All Over the World for Your Viewing Pleasure

Your own virtual meta museum.

By //Tech

Google is out to revolutionize the way we look at and appreciate art with a new app called ‘Google Arts & Culture.’ Offering so much more than just being able to scope out when your local museum’s opening hours, users can also check out works from more than a thousand museums from over 70 countries. Other cool features include the ability to sort out a specific artist’s catalog based on colors, catching up on a curated selection of arts and culture-related articles sourced from museum websites, or making use of Google Street View’s 360-degree photos of museum interiors and world landmarks — further providing a frame of reference for their scale and physicality.

Ideal for art lovers, Google Arts & Culture is available for download now through iOS and Android for free. Check out the video above to learn more about the app’s functionality.
