Is it possible to set the status bar to transparent?

Is it possible to set the status bar to fully transparent? Not translucent.

Hi,

I have exactly the same question. I can’t only set background colors with backgroundColor because there are images with multiple colors in the background :slight_smile:

I know that is it possible directly manipulating AndroidManifest.xml, but with expo how we can do that ?

Thanks a lot

Hi, according to the docs, the status bar is translucent by default. Setting the colour clears the FLAG_TRANSLUCENT_STATUS flag:

So I think you will get the behaviour you want if you make sure you do NOT set the backgroundColor at all.
