Microsoft Teams Is Bringing Back Clippy

Microsoft has brought back perhaps the most annoying virtual assistant of all time, Clippy, the punchable paperclip who offers up non-helpful tips every few seconds.

Don’t worry though, he won’t be popping up in your Chats, rather he stars as one of four Teams backgrounds you can download for a workplace nostalgia boost.

Aside from Clippy, you can download backgrounds for Microsoft Solitaire, Paint, and the Windows XP meadow.

“Because a little trip down memory lane can be good for the soul, and because after well over a year of remote and hybrid work we could all use some excitement on video calls,” the company wrote.

“We asked our designers to give a few memorable Microsoft moments their debut as Teams backgrounds.
