  • Face match doesn't work in Illinois

    By cjanes1999
    It's a good app but since I live in Illinois, face match doesn't work. Oh well.
  • Face match bummer

    By Bskdoelsjci
    Face match isn't available in Texas. Total Bummer and waste of space to download because all the other information is available elsewhere on the internet.
  • Cultural Awareness!

    By Lazy Dry Clean Abuser
    Amazing opportunity to see and explore both for those with and without the ability to see these works in person! Kudos to Google for recognizing the importance of this type of awareness!!!
  • Doesn’t detect art

    By Momler
    We took a picture of Mona Lisa and it didn’t detect it as the Mona Lisa...
  • Lots of fun

  • Not in Texas?!

    By AwesomeAllens
    I’m super sad. Can’t do the selfie thing because I live in Texas?! Laaaaame.
  • Biometric Data Fail

    By Eek 134
    Can’t do selfies because Google wont follow state laws requiring disclosure of biometric data collection. Instead of following the strictest state laws and applying it to everyone (eg, auto industry and CA emissions standards) Google has taken the weaker path and will only allow this feature in states where no laws are in place to protect their citizens from the misuse of biometric data. Lost a lot of respect for Google on this one, and you’re only as good as your brand name.
  • Boo

    It won’t load! I get the hamster wheel of death every time I open it
  • It's ok

    By DluxedadRunner
    Everyone is excited about how good this app is and I am not impressed. Being shown a street mural is not my idea of world class art. I'm disappointed with Google on this one!
