That annoying Chromecast notification is coming from the Facebook app - here's how to fix it

Posted: 29 Oct 2016 01:20 PM PDT

2016-10-29 19.41Over the past few days Android users have been noticing an annoying notification that pops up after using the Facebook app and watching any video. It says "Cast Device Not Connected," and includes a play and close button... and that's it. The notification opens the Facebook app when it's tapped, but the buttons don't do anything and it can't be dismissed with the usual swipe. The only way to kill the notification is to force close Facebook.

Android 7.1 launched with the new Pixel phones and became available in beta form for the Nexus 5X and 6P not too long ago, but many apps are already introducing support for the new features that 7.1 brings. With its newest alpha build, Twitter has become the latest app to do so by adding support for app shortcuts and a round app icon. This build also enables multi-window for devices running 7.0 Nougat+.

Action Launcher makes Quickcuts free, implements more of the Pixel and Android 7.1's features

It's fun to see developers duking it out — peacefully — over who adds the most new features first. Action Launcher's and Nova Launcher's devs are a great example. And it's all for the good of the platform and early adopters. Take Android 7.1's launcher app shortcuts. Action Launcher was the first to add them preemptively, Nova Launcher followed by enabling them even on earlier versions of Android, and now Action Launcher is implementing gestures with them to let you open the app shortcuts pop-up and select one of the shortcuts in one go.

Hands-On with MUVIZ Nav Bar Audio Visualizer: Really neat if you are into this sort of thing

Music is definitely everywhere. From our own personal libraries and streaming stations to advertisements and entertainment, it is a fundamental part of who we are as individuals and as a culture (for better or for worse). Since music is just noise (how's that for a scientific breakthrough), I have always found it neat to see the visual representation of the soundwaves in line with the song that is playing. Back when Windows Media Player was a thing, I always turned on the visualizer, finding it much more entertaining than staring at the album art — or worse, the placeholder image when no art was available.

The first major update to Allo, version 2.0, added a number of much-needed improvements. However, WhatsApp users may note that chat themes are still missing in Allo. 9to5Google has managed to enable some hidden themes included with the update, which can be enabled on a per-user basis.

These are just a few of the numerous themes already inside the Allo APK, presumably waiting for Google to flip the server-side switch. 9to5Google did not share the method used to unlock the themes, only saying it was done on a rooted phone.

Google celebrates Halloween with ghosts, ghouls, witches, pumpkins, and more in Android Pay

To most people, Halloween means witches, ghosts, and ghouls. Google's obviously gone with this definition too, since the animations on Android Pay have been updated to include a range of the undead, pumpkins, witches, wizards, ghosts, ghouls, and skeletons.

There seem to be a lot of these so we've been unable to find them all and present them here, but we've found a few, which you can see in the screenshots, GIFs, and YouTube video.
