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.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentThe 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.

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.

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
