Google's New App Will Calculate The Calories In Your Instagram Food Porn

Imagine snaping a quick photo of your dinner plate and instantly getting a calorie count right on your phone.

It turns out Google is working on an app that will enable Instagram users to do just that -- snap pics of their food and get calorie counts for what they're eating. Impressive, huh?

We all know keeping up with fitness bands and apps at the same time is a pain, so killing two birds with one stone would make all the difference.

The technology for the app was developed by DeepMind, a company Google acquired for $400 million in 2014.

Despite how awesome and necessary this might seem, a few concerns about the app's accuracy have already been raised.

Why? Well, simply because calorie counting is almost never really correct.

The slice of pizza you're eating will always be different from the slice of pizza your friend is eating, even if it's from the same pie.

How will the app allow users to narrow down their food information and receive accurate calorie counts?

We'll just have to wait and see!

According to TIME, Google already filed a patent for the app's technology.
