Check in full the note that the founder of groovy published about the decision:

Hello everyone,

It’s with a heavy heart that I announce today that Groovy is closing. The team has been pondering this decision for some time and unfortunately there is no way forward that includes Groovy. On August 30th, Groovy will end its service. All premium users who paid for the service after that date will receive a refund within the next few weeks.

Groovy has been a big part of my life for the past five years. It all started because my friend’s bot was terrible and I thought I could make a better one. Evidently, you agreed. Over the years, Groovy has slowly evolved from a personal corporate project to an industrial powerhouse. With each new user, Groovy’s task became more difficult and new challenges arose. These challenges have arisen. These challenges motivated my learning and is the reason why I have a career today.

I want to thank each of you for using Groovy. All of you contributed to molding him into what he is today. Hope you have a wonderful day and remember: stay cool (Groovy).

asked by The Verge, O Google responded that the notification to the groovy was sent because of violations of the Service Terms, including modifying the service and using it for commercial purposes, and that your API is intended for developers who comply with the terms of service.

Nik Ammerlan I still said in an interview with The Verge that during the five years of the project he always imagined that one day this would happen, he just didn’t know when. And also talked about how much the groovy has overwhelmed him for the past five years.

Although it takes many years for an action by the YouTube against Groovy Bot, finally the company was troubled by a service that violated its terms and which briefly removed the ads from the videos for its users.

The biggest service to listen to music on the servers of the Discord, O Rythm Bot, remains alive and is currently present on 20 million servers, reaching 560 million users and with the drop in groovy, it is expected that it will be difficult for the Rythm keep running.
