Which famous work of art do you most resemble?

Like Flappy Bird and Angry Birds before it, Google's Arts & Culture app and its "Is your face in a museum?" feature has gone viral.

If you're in Texas and you couldn't figure out where the face-match tool is, there's a reason.

It's now only available in the U.S. There is no word from Google on when the app will be introduced to these two states and to the rest of the world. It's now no. 1 on both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

While the belief "there are seven lookalikes in the world" may not be true to the word, according to Google Arts & Culture app there is a portrait in some corner of the world that looks like you.

From there, you take the selfie with your smartphone camera, and see what Google comes up with. According to the Chicago Tribune, while Google won't confirm why, it's likely because states like IL and Texas have stricter laws on biometrics. The company said it won't use data from photos for any other goal but to match it with images in its catalog.

Google's art & culture app has been around for a few years now, however, it recently managed to cut a swath in the charts for the most trending apps for both Android and iOS. It only stores selfies for the time it takes to find matches, Google said.

Additionally, the app allows you to to explore the history of the paintings and information on the artists.
