Did I lose the art search feature?

I could swear on Windows Phone 7 there was an app that let me turn on the camera and it would search for and identity art. Did I lose that feature with Windows Phone 8 or do I just not remember where it is?

I'm not aware of anything like that. Scanning barcodes is the only built-in feature I'm aware of, and I have no idea how an app would find art based on what one aims the camera at.

I found it. It is still under Bing. Just had to point the camera at an image of the Mona Lisa and it found it. Before, I had a pixilated jigsaw puzzle. Apparently it didn't recognize that.
