Clippy for your Teams Meetings

Clippy features in one of these backgrounds. It shows Clippy with his yellow paper and an animated paperclip.

Microsoft wrote in the post that Clippy is loved or hated by everyone. Clippy may be viewed as too persistent, eager, or polite. Clippy, our OG virtual assistant, is a little ahead of its time, we like to believe.

Clippy will not be appearing in a Microsoft 365 update. Microsoft stated, “No Clippy is part of Microsoft 365. However, regardless, we can only hope this high-definition portrait will add some humor to your next Meeting.”

Solitaire, Bliss, and Paint also make a comeback.

Another background features an artistic rendition of Microsoft Solitaire. It turned 31 years old in May 2021. Virtually everyone who used Windows in the past has played Solitaire. Now, you can even remember your favorite distraction when you’re in a Microsoft Teams meeting.

Microsoft also revived the infamous background Bliss. The original image was taken at Los Carneros American Viticultural Area in California’s Wine Country in 1996. It served as Windows XP’s default wallpaper.

Microsoft improved the image this time by softening and shifting shadows and adding some dandelions.

Microsoft Paint’s original version was the last background Microsoft revealed. It is a reminder that there were simpler times when raster graphic editors only had a handful of tools.
