    You can still use Facebook through the browser or third party apps

    Yes I am also a FB beta user. This gives me some comfort knowing it is not my phone but just a rogue app.
    My wife and I are not using FB beta and we're both experiencing this issue. Her on an S7 starting a week or two ago and me on a Nexus 6p that just started today

    Hey. I've had the same problem for 3 days. I have now removed the FB app and simply went on to Google to sign in to FB and saved the page to my homescreen.
    I then tested by playing a video and it has fixed the irritating notification. Not ideal but defiantly working fine now.

    Well my gf has the s6 so it's no longer just an s7 problem as she is experiencing the same cast issue, only solution is still to force stop or disable notifications.

    A company worth $350 billion can't fix a pop-up issue .

    I turned my phone and the notification seemed to go away. Might continue to leave it off until the issue is fixed.

    So I tried to google this and could not find a solution or anything resembling what I am dealing with. It started two days ago, but in my notifications, I have a message that reads,"Cast device not detected." I can not remove the notification from the list and when I click on it, it does nothing. The Cast app does see all the devices in the house and can cast to them. Only way of removing the notification is from reseting it, but it comes back. I tried deleting the Cast app and it seemed to have worked. Nothing showed up all day yesterday, but then it came back with a vengeance this morning.

    Has anyone else felt with this and was able to fix it?
    I was having the same issue. FYI: Google updated/replaced the Google Cast app with Google Home (which includes all the previous Google Cast capabilities but is now primed for other IoT devices, like thermostats, lighting, etc...) and ever since the update, I was getting the rogue Cast Cannot Connect to Device error. It was driving me nuts. I found this thread. A bunch of people made the connection to FB. I long-pressed on the error and it took me to Facebook notification settings. I turned them off and the error immediately disappeared. I suspect that Facebook hasn't updated their app to be compatible with Google Home yet.

    Phone: Samsung Galaxy S7
    Solution: Disable Facebook notifications.

    Cheers.

    I noticed it comes back when I play a video in Facebook. Something is triggering it when ever I play any video. Could it just be the Facebook app itself?
    Good call... Same issue and FB beta...

    I had the same issue and resolved by going to Android Settings, Notifications, and change Facebook notifications to "No". Message has remained off even after changing back to "yes".
    Performed on Samsung 7.

    Looks like it is the FB app. I tried playing videos in other apps and the FB app is the only one that causes this issue.
    After reading this thread, I opened FB and used the task killer to close FB and the banner went away.

    I used the application manager to delete the cache and app data then logged back in. The moment I deleted the app data, the message disappeared.

    It's 100% a fault of the Facebook app. There's a bug in their implementation of Google's casting option for videos on Facebook, so whenever you try and watch a video it causes the cast feature to get stuck. Can only clear with a force stop. Can't do anything until Facebook patch it, except use an older version via side loading.

    Try this & let me know if it works. Hold down on the icon until a Facebook app pops up. Once that happens click in the upper right corner for s menu, once you go into the settings disable the Facebook notifications.Worked for me hope it works for you.

    This worked. I haven't played another video on fb yet to see if that will make it come back though.
