Same trouble here. I've tried just about everything. Google play services delivers the popup, but this only happens in Gospel Library, so not sure who the culprit is. I'm leaning towards blaming it on the gospel library update, though. I didn't care for the update. Regardless, this popup makes the app useless, as I can't navigate anywhere in the library while the popup is there. I keep closing it, and up it comes two seconds later. I'll try going in airplane mode, like others suggest. Hopefully a fix will come soon!

If you go to settings, scroll down, click on Google, then their should be an option in there for Google cast.

Fixed it on my Samsung galaxy a10 tab.

Go to you're phone's settings. It may be on your home screen, or you may have to go to the screen that shows every app on your phone.

This issue is fixed in Gospel Library Android 4.0.3, which should be available early next week. It's caused by the newest 25.1.1 Google support library for Chromecast. Google hasn't fixed it on their end yet, so for Gospel Library 4.0.3 the developers rolled the support library back to 25.0.1.

(Bluetooth is one of the things that gets disabled when you turn on airplane mode.)



I just tested disabling bluetooth to not avail, it continues to prompt and prompt and prompt. So far this is the only app I have that has this problem and it only happens near my daughters bedroom, (I think the next door neighbors have a chromcast device)... makes reading scriptures at bed time a pain..

Also looking for some kind of hack/work around.

Well, I thought that I had fixed the problem on my Android device by going to "Google Settings", clicked on "Google Cast", and disabling it. But the problem reappeared a day later even though Google Cast was disabled. It seems like it eventually stops trying to cast to a nearby device after several minutes. But that is not acceptable. We need a way to disable it up front. This very well may be a bug the developers need to fix. Sorry for raising any hopes. :-(

Do you have a Chromecast? Have you disabled guest more on it?

I am having the same issue on Galaxy S5. I reinstalled Gospel Library and thought it fixed it but no it started again. Just crashing like crazy. So I went the other route and uninstalled Google Home, formerly Chromecast. To my surprise it cast it again! Don't know how that happened! I have no other Apps that cast themselves without my initiation. Bery very frustrating. Thanks for the airplane mode tip.
