Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was left stunned after his Google Assistant hilariously roasted him during a livestream. 

Since making the switch from competitive Overwatch to full-time Twitch streaming, xQc has become one of the faces of the platform - racking up over 1.5 million followers and thousands of subscribers.

Fans tune in to watch him rage at games or roast his teammates, but like all good Twitch chats, they jump onboard themselves with inside jokes, roasts, and emote spam. Yet, not even they could have roasted xQc like his Google Assistant decided to.

The former Overwatch pro has quickly become one of Twitch's most popular channels.

During his August 25 stream, the Canadian had been chatting with viewers and listening to music recommendations when he paused everything to speak to his Google Assistant. “Hey Google, sing me a song” he asked, prompting the machine to break into a pre-recorded song. 

While the streamer was seemingly enjoying the tune, he looked back towards it once it had finished up - seemingly getting ready to thank it. However, he got a shock when the voice changed to his text-to-speech man instead, and fired shots at him. “Fuck you PVC,” it stated, leaving the streamer stunned. 

Lengyel was left staring blankly before offering up a “Wait, what?” after hearing the Google assistant rattle off a regular Twitch chat roast.

The hilarity of the clip prompted it to go viral on a number of subreddits, with some commenters also confused by what had happened. 

Some suggested that it was xQc housemate Adept playing a joke on him, as having multiple Google Assistants in one house means you can send messages back in forth.

How it got the text-to-speech voice, however, is still a mystery and it clearly stunned xQc into thinking that someone had possibly hacked it or it was learning from his chat.

He can rest easy, though, as the Google Assistant probably won’t break out into 777 or emote spam anytime soon  - Lengyel will just have to deal with that from his thousands of viewers instead.
