Crazy introduction "feature"

I’m on version 23.0.382 of the app on Android. Not sure if that’s the latest as I’m using an older phone after losing a more recent one. Each time I go to meditate, a canned introduction starts playing after calibration.

I hope that’s not intentional as it is annoying on many levels. Am I on the latest version (and how do I find out) and is anyone else experiencing this “feature”?
