Google introduced a new feature that allows you to find your pet’s doppelganger in historical paintings.

The tool is part of the company’s “Art and Culture” app and uses artificial intelligence to scan whether someone has painted an animal that looks like the one in your house.

It could pick pets in anything from ancient Egyptian characters to Mexican street art, Google said as a result of its partnerships with a wide variety of institutions around the world.

The feature will work on dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles, horses, or rabbits, says Google.

To use the feature, users simply download the app and send their picture. But there is a lot more going on behind the scenes.

Computer vision algorithms first find the pet in the picture and then crop it so that it is in the center. It then searches tens of thousands of different works of art to find the most similar ones.

It will then draw its conclusion and display any animals found that look similar.

The feature builds on a human version released in 2018. According to Google, more than 120 million selfies have now been submitted as part of this function.
