For example, if you want to give 20% transparent background for yellow color (#FFFF00). So your background color would be #33FFFF00

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity"
   android:background="#33FFFF00"
   android:gravity="center"
   android:orientation="vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/text"
      android:textSize="18sp"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code we have give 20% transparent yellow background for text view.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.andy.myapplication;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;
import org.w3c.dom.Text;
import java.util.Locale;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      TextView textView=findViewById(R.id.text);
      textView.setText("Tutorialspoint india pvt ltd");
   }
}
