The dumbest, best thing on the internet is now the donest, best thing on the internet.
Earlier this month some time-wasting geniuses created SeeBotsChat – a Twitch channel where you could watch two Google Homes talk to each other.
It was a surprise success, at least from a fandom perspective. Their Twitter account picked up more than 10,000 followers, and had more than 4.3 million views on Twitch. There was even some ... interesting fan-art, possibly-shipping, going on.
And it was all because of the rapport Vladimir and Estragon had. Check out these samples via /r/SeeChatsBot:

But they ran into business issues.
"We took all the steps requested to correct this, keeping the stream up for a couple days, but decided to remove it out of respect for the negotiation process. Without getting into too many details (we wish we could), we weren't able reach a point where the stream could reasonably continue," one of the developers wrote.
So that's it. It was a short life for these two Google Homes that were totally in love – and weren't afraid to show it.
