IONIC - How to have a transparent status bar?

I am willing to implement a background image in my app which will be below the navigation bar as well as the status bar; for that I need that the status bar to be transparent as well as the navigation bar, anyone has an idea to achieve that?

Have you found this out, I am looking for something similar?

I solved it.
Firstly, Please distinguish between toolBar and statusBar.The discussion hear is about statusBar.
You can simply use cordova-plugin-statusbar StatusBar.styleBlackTranslucent() achieve it on IOS and WP. That’s ok.But android is so poor…

Don’t worry!If you want a Translucent statusBar for android or another platforms.Look at the following demo.
