Do you remember Clippy? Returns in the form of emoji | Digital Trends Spanish

The popular Clippy, one of Microsoft’s first assistants, returns to the prominence that it had a few years ago. The company has started a social media survey to turn it into emoji within Office 365.

In its Twitter account, Microsoft asks users if they want Clippy to replace the emoji of the clip that has been used for the last time in Microsoft 365.

According to the company, if the responses reach 20,000 “likes”, the change will take effect, that is, Clippy would return again and replace the clipboard emoji.

If this gets 20k likes, we’ll replace the paperclip emoji in Microsoft 365 with Clippy.

In reality, there are no longer many doubts regarding this matter, since the 20 thousand favorable reactions were achieved in a matter of minutes; in fact, so far the publication has already added more than 145 thousand likes.

This change would be part of a larger update proposed by the company, which will include 1,800 emoji in Microsoft 365 revamped with 3D designs and the company’s Fluent Design language.

“I grew up using Clippy, and it seemed like a fun little Easter egg,” says Claire Anderson, Microsoft’s emoji specialist, in an interview with The Verge.

“We all imagine that delight when you put the clip on a Microsoft product and all of a sudden you get this dose of nostalgia.”

Now it only remains to be seen how Microsoft will implement this new change, with the expectation of officially launching Windows 11 and the announcement of Windows 365 presented just a day ago.

It should be remembered that, in recent times, different versions of Clippy had appeared as wallpapers for Teams and wallpapers for cell phones.
