Those who hold a Groove Music Pass subscription that extends beyond December 31 will be given a prorated refund or a Microsoft gift card for the remaining value.
For more on Groove Music shutting down and the transition to Spotify, you'll find an exhaustive FAQ here, which should help address any queries you might have on the matter.

Music streaming hasn't simply outpaced digital downloads and the purchase of CDs, it's now responsible for supporting America's recorded music industry.
The app will support iOS and Android devices to use the music from OneDrive, but streaming will discontinue on December 31st. So, the team of company decided today, to end up the service and be a part of digital music service "Spotify" instead. Not that there was anything terribly wrong with it. Groove Music was quite competent, but there was nothing that made it stand out as being in any way better than the competition. This, of course, means that Groove will soon be going the way of the Dodo, with Groove's current paying customers transitioned over to Spotify.
Effective immediately, Microsoft will cease the sale of Groove Music passes. An update to Groove on Windows 10 next week will provide the tools to do so. In any case, Pandora does not really contend with administrations like Spotify on the grounds that the previous has still not possessed the capacity to change over its free users into paying ones.
Although the end is near for Groove Music, Microsoft will continue to invest money into the app so their customers can still access their music. Playlists and collections from Groove will move to Spotify and paid users will get 60 days free of Spotify Premium.
