It has happened again. Popular Discord bot Rythm is shutting down. As we expected and feared, Youtube has asked for the largest music bot to be shut down. Find out why and what’s next for its users.
Discord Rythm Bot Shutting Down Reason
Google has sent a cease and desist notice to Rythm Bot to stop its service to more than 20 million communities. It will happen as soon as 15th September 2021. Basically, a cease and desist letter gives a notice to the receivers to stop a particular activity, or else a lawsuit will be initiated.
The creators expected it, as they mentioned to The Verge. The fact that Groovy got a notice and had to shut down almost immediately, put other music bots on the radar and that’s exactly what is happening with Rythm.
Why is Rythm Bot going Offline?
The reason is similar to what caused Groovy’s shut down. The one sent to Groovy bot included that they “modified the service and used it for commercial purposes” which is why it needs to be discontinued.
Soon enough, the other music bots may also have to face the same outcome. The creators of Rythm Bot, meanwhile, are working on something new. It will still be in the music space that will ‘revolutionize how we all listen to music’ as per their message on Rythm.fm. They have asked users to keep Rythm in their servers and subscribe to their newsletters. By doing this, you will stay updated with any latest news which will arrive in the new few months.
So, if you are a fan of Rythm Bot, thankfully, this is not the end. Let’s wait and see what’s next in store for this service.
