Google’s Newest Feature For Art Lovers.
Google Maps has made it possible to explore Museums.
but once you are there, there is little else you can do besides simply viewing works of art.
Google plans to change that.
An update will NOW allow Street View museum-goers to read annotations about paintings, zoom in on high-resolution images, and more.

When exploring a museum on Google Street View,
you will now see information appear on the walls alongside paintings.
You can click on these annotations to view more information about that specific work.
Google has gathered such details from hundreds of museums around the world.
According to Google, its search engine receives 500 million art-related queries each month, which is why it’s making some improvements to the search experience as well.
These new panels will be available on desktop, mobile web, and Google’s iOS and Android apps.
