  • (2021-08-02) Amy Stevens: I love this extension so much but can't figure out how to change the image every tab. Can you help me?
  • (2021-07-23) Max za: Идеально
  • (2021-06-21) Karlos Zafra: The idea is great but the art is repetitive and it doesn't fit my taste, and there's no option to select the style or anything.
  • (2021-06-07) Anastasia Fort: I really love this extension in discovering new works and artists, and also being reminded of all the works I am already familiar with. I do wish and this could be a very cool new feature - if I could filter the types of works that I received... for example see only works by artists of color or works in a particular time period.
  • (2021-05-28) Edna Novoa: Me encanta esta extensión. Me ha permitido conocer artistas y obras que me han agradado mucho. ademas se puede contemplar en una buena resolución. Me gusta abrir el navegador o una pestaña nueva y ser sorprendida por una nueva obra. Enhorabuena
  • (2021-05-24) Adam Ajroudi: FEEDBACK: I would love to see the like button on the Google Arts & Culture site when you click the artwork. It would make adding these paintings to the favorites library more convenient and accessible.
  • (2021-05-24) Const: Toujours les mêmes images, pas super intéressantes pour la plupart et de mauvaise qualité. Je met 4 étoiles parce que j'aime bien l'idée mais bon...
  • (2021-05-11) Ruben M: hello, amazing app, only thing is that i love it so much that i want it for my desktop so i was wondering if this extension saves the image on my pc or not because if it does i could use that dir to upgrade my desktop background. if someone knows about my need please help (i'm on ubuntu by the way) thanks!
  • (2021-05-07) Yi Ting Lee: I like the extension. It really takes me know more great artists and masterpieces. But it keeps sending me the same group of images for a while. Renew the image seems not helping to the algorithm(if there's any).
  • (2021-04-14) Batoul Khalifeh: Loved this extension. I took out a star because I can't seem to find a way to set specific collections as the default ones to display. Anyone know how? Googled it but no result! :(
  • (2021-03-25) Jarrell Dunson: Hey, just added it... ** Is it possible to show a new picture for each tab that we open? Versus once per day? Jarrell
  • (2021-03-15) Dennis Bjørneset: The only reason I give it a 4/5 is because it cuts of most of the picture on 16:9 screens. I'd prefer black bars on the sides to get the correct perspective as I think it looks much better that way than it being zoomed in and cut. Everything else is great!
  • (2021-03-12) J Walls: This extension is awesome... but one suggestion-- like others have suggested, I would recommend putting the year of the work next to the title. I would also recommend adding more art to the rotation!
  • (2021-02-08) Ángel Miguel Nuñez Cruz: I really like the art implementation every time a new tab is open. Its refreshing and relaxing.
  • (2021-02-05) kamyar kavehfar: kose nanat baba
  • (2021-01-30) NGUYEN CHAU TAN: ok
  • (2021-01-17) Sal Russo: Je viens de la découvrir: 4 stars for sympathy!
  • (2021-01-07) Fab Kisala: Bonjour tout le monde
  • (2021-01-07) 이재윤 ,로드튜브 Korea Road Tube: 사용하기 좋아요
  • (2021-01-05) Akshay Aher: Great content! A minor complaint I have is that the date is missing and I have to open the Arts & Culture page to know it.
  • (2020-12-30) Андрій Царенко: Краще, ніж фото пейзажів!
  • (2020-12-29) Juan Pablo Picasso: Dost neprijemne je vyplneni okna bez zachovani originalniho pomeru zobrazeneho dila. Musim hybat oknem abych videl kompletni obraz. Je to pro me na hrane snesitelnosti.
  • (2020-12-29) Sueyoung Shim: Great extension except that it's skewed towards the western and japan artworks only. I hope it could display art pieces from more diverse background.
  • (2020-12-20) Robert Mutch: I really like this extension, but, after a year or so I now seem to be seeing a lot of the same artwork.
  • (2020-12-02) Yurong H: 并不能显示,新标签页一片空白,给三星
  • (2020-12-01) Tim Pollard: I enjoy the different art images, but it would be nice to be able to provide a frame around the image, so it was clear that you were seeing the entire piece, instead of perhaps only a portion.
  • (2020-11-27) Michal Rabiňák: I like it a lot...BUT...the pictures are set to fill the screen. Because of that, it is blurry almost all the time and the sides are cut so you cant see the whole picture. Why is not possible to set it to the original size? It would be better to see a smaller picture but complete and sharp instead of this blurry cut version. Also, information about the year of painting would be great.
  • (2020-11-06) Jukebox :P: i want this to be removed from my google chrome. i hate this extension. because every time i open the new tab, i always see some painting that i don't really like. it's just colorless for me. And i must click the home button to view my new-tab-page wallpaper that i like.
  • (2020-11-05) Samuel Lopez: te obliga a tener una imagen no la puedes elegir
  • (2020-11-01) EMid MSO: Great restful extension BUT I think it permanently disables the Start where you left off AND Open these Tabs functions, except after reboot. Have tried uninstalling, but no help
  • (2020-10-22) Bulat Awx: Hello, please add new paintings
  • (2020-10-17) Tommaso Cavestro: non è per niente male per chi vuole cambiare e avere una home molto più pulita ma vi consiglio di poter sciegliere tra diverse categorie di immagini come la scheda predefinita di chrome
  • (2020-10-15) Felipe Torres: They have about 30 total pictures, so if you use your browser more than 1 hour a day, you'll start seeing repeats after about 5 days. I'm removing right now.
  • (2020-10-12) Ted Miller: luvit!!!
  • (2020-10-10) Mohamed Alqority: احمد
  • (2020-10-07) Haile Tafesse: i will be very happy if you would tell me what aspects of art in particular literature is considered as in novel, poetry, essays, etc. ?
  • (2020-10-06) Fernando Emilio Pablo Pulido: Ya compre la biblioteca pero no la puedo instalar en Window 10
  • (2020-09-28) hoocna: Excelente idea, Lástima que luego pasa días y días sin funcionar. Llevo semanas sin ver una imagen.
  • (2020-09-26) Dream & Cherri Bomb OwO: well i liked it but somehow it was downloaded on my school laptop and i can't remove it I wanted the old background like the google background but nothing happen-
  • (2020-09-23) xiao dong liu: it's blank
  • (2020-08-30) Sami Wright: I can't even begin to tell you how amazing Google Arts and Culture is, I could sit and look at it all day long and have to actually force myself to stop and do whatever I have to do. I am visually impaired and still am able to see the lovely works and places on my computer. If I want to read the information, I go to my Pixel 3aXL, click on the little man, and listen as it reads the article to me. I have so wanted you to know how wonderful this is Google, you have opened up a new and beautiful world to me.
  • (2020-08-23) Susan Schweitzer: Great but one feature request: it would be really nice to be able to access the "heart" to add to favourites without having to click through. I often open a new tab, see something amazing, want to keep track of it, but need to do whatever it was that prompted me to open the new tab in the first place. Please add the functionality of clicking "add to favs" on the loaded tab itself, not just when the user clicks through. Otherwise a great way to add some visual art to your life.
  • (2020-08-14) Robert Gaal: Most of the images are actually pretty low resolution. They're offering higher resolution on the Google Arts & Culture site, so it's such a miss. There are also no options to pick art from certain institutions or types. It's not being actively developed. I'd love for this to be better.
  • (2020-08-05) Kibri Kubirik: The application is so useful but it is needed to be improved. Thanks for providing that kind of opportunity to meet amazing masterpieces. However, some artists do not exist (or the given information about them are so insufficient) on the app even though they are unique and important ones (such as İbrahim Balaban, Neşet Günal, Avni Arbaş etc.). Some of these artists are really important in terms of demonstrating the situation of the public. They illustrated the culture and well being rate of the Turkish people in a realistic way; how these people worked and how they were treated by the upper class... That is why I think it is crucial to make them reach more people. It would be awesome if there were a part where we can write down the artists/artworks that we want to see on Google Arts and Culture. Thanks, wish you have lovely days... Kübra
  • (2020-07-22) Katherine Vargas: Such pretty images when opening tabs. I love it!
  • (2020-07-07) Tomasz Salamon: Mukava avata aina uusi ja erilainen välilehti
  • (2020-06-25) Никита Голдин: love it. but would be great to have small links or icons of websites I prefer above the art work. like in safari
  • (2020-04-13) rochelle: Love this!!!! Wish you could zoom in or out of parts of each painting and zoom into the informational plaques so you could read them. Thanks Google
  • (2020-04-13) loulou misuman: waw j'aimerais les voyages imaginaire 😍😍 c'est une application incroyable
  • (2020-04-08) Prashant Mahajan: This extension is causing severe slowness since last 2 months or so. I have it for a long time, never had issue befor. After adding a new tab or opening browser, browser and whole machine freezes for 1-2 mins. Windows Version 81.0.4044.92 (Official Build) (64-bit).
