Millions of Discord users are saying goodbye to the Groovy music bot as of August 30.
Groovy, which is an effective tool for cheering up Discord chat rooms, can use the sounds in YouTube videos and play the music queued by the users, as you know. However, YouTube has issued a cease and desist order against Groovy’s creator, which could go as far as the widespread shutdown of the music bot.
A spokesperson for the company said that Groovy violated YouTube’s terms of service on the condition that it “modify the service and use it for commercial purposes.” According to incoming information, the music bot, which has become quite popular, has been installed on more than 16 million servers.
Groovy developer Nik Ammerlaan said, “My friend’s bot was terrible and I thought I could do better. I don’t know why they came to such a decision now. To be honest, they probably didn’t know that. It was only a matter of time before they saw that.” says.
With the shutdown of Groovy, we can say that Discord servers will now be quieter. Discord, one of the largest messaging and chat applications in the world, is worth over 10 billion dollars. With Groovy becoming so popular, it naturally gained attention after a while.
In an announcement on the Official Groovy server, Ammerlaan wrote:
“I want to thank every one of you individually for using Groovy. All of you had a part in making it what it is today. I hope you all have a great day and remember: stay great.“
