Microsoft may bring back Clippy for MS Office

Microsoft plans to bring back Clippy, the shape-shifting virtual assistant.

Microsoft took to Twitter on July 14 to announce the possible return of Clippy if the tweet crosses 20,000 likes.

Clippit, the bouncing character with its large, googly eyes was designed by Kevan J. Atteberry.

Although Microsoft demanded a target of 20,000 likes, the tweet has had an overwhelming response so far, gathering 1,31,900 likes, 13,100 retweets, and over a thousand comments at the time of writing this story.

As per reports, the paperclip almost made a return a couple of years ago when some Microsoft employees “briefly resurrected Clippy as animated stickers in Microsoft Teams”. However, the effort was quickly shut down.
