What Dog (A Microsoft Garage Project)
By Microsoft Corporation
What Dog, recognizes dogs and classifies them by their breed. As with any AI technology powered experiences, What Dog is able to learn and get better over time. While What Dog has knowledge of over a 100 popular pure breeds, it is still learning to recognize mixed breeds, so if we don't get it right, send us feedback from within the app, and then try again in the future!
What Dog Fun: Just for fun we include a fun mode that lets you find out what dog breeds you and your friends are.
Do some research: There's also an extensive collection of breeds that contains information such as disposition, size, coat and what types of families are best suited for each.
This is the kind of app you're going to take out when you're with your friends. You'll make fun of each other, comparing which breeds you look like, and posting the tagged photos. We hope you enjoy it and the what-dog.net website as much as we enjoyed building them!
The Microsoft Garage is an outlet for experimental projects for you to try. Learn more and discover other garage projects at http://garage.microsoft.com.
Application updated to support iOS 10 permissions model for Camera and Photos.
Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t work! First I took a picture of my very large, but not overweight, 85 lb full blood Doberman Pincher lying down with head up. It said, “It is not a dog.“ So giving it the benefit of a doubt I tried a picture of my dog’s head next to a headrest in my car, where you can obviously see the size comparison of his head to the headrest. He has his ears cropped in the show cut (which I didn’t do, by the way). It said 60% or so that it was a Miniature Pincher. The rest were other small breed dog options. So I picked a picture where I thought there was no doubt as to the breed. He is a textbook large red Dobie. It still came up with Min Pin.
I give up!! Going to delete now. Waste of my time!!
IT'S GOOD DESPITE THE OTHER REVIEWS!!
My dogs are little rescue puppies and when we got them we had no clue what they were. I found this app and tried it out and it gave me one main option as well as several others on what they could be which was great! A lot of people are complaining though. Of course the app needs to be updated, the interface is a bit dated. But the idea that the app isn't 100% accurate it ridiculous. OF COURSE IT WON'T BE 100% CORRECT, YOU'RE ONLY SENDING IN A PICTURE NOT A DNA SAMPLE! This is the best free app there is no question it gives you all the information you need. If you want complete accuracy buy the $5.99 app or get your dog a DNA test!!
🐕 Lol it's great 🐩
You can't seriously think an app will guess your who-knows-what mutt accurately?? Did you expect some Houdini-magic??
And also; Of course this app won't have every dog breed on the planet. It also depends on the lighting and the angle you take your photo.
Look, honestly, this is very good for an app that just analyzes your dog's photo and matches it with bing images. I have 2 Siberian Huskys and I did my white puppy who was looking out the window.
Know what she got? Dogo Argentino and Eskimo Dog. That's pretty good.
And I love how it gives you facts about different dog breeds! Great source of quick-information!
I rated it 4 stars because my dog had a fairly thinner face than a Dogo Argentino and she had a visibly curlier tail and pointy ears.
Still, Dogo Argentino and Eskimo Dog were very good and close guesses.
It recognizes color more imo, to stop the 2.4 stars it could recognize bodily structure and different poses of it, too.
