Smartphones: a way to get rid of “Unfortunately, Google has stopped”

Self-tutoring about a smartphone: the tutor mentions a solution he found.

Recently my smartphone (Nexus 4 from 2013, I believe) started popping up a message pane: “Unfortunately, Google has stopped.” It would pop up over and over, sometimes only a few seconds apart; texting, etc., got difficult to do.

At the same time, the phone appeared to work normally, save for the annoying pop-up that kept getting in the way. I’d hoped it would just stop, but after about 10 days I decided to take action.

I’m no tech expert. I followed a solution shown in this video from the YouTuber Ultimate DIY. The pop-up no longer happens. Whether it’s the best solution I don’t know, but it’s apparently worked for me.
