Default Transparent Nav and Status Bar

I have Xposed, but can't for the life of me find out how (if possible) to make the nav and status bars transparent. I've looked all over. Found it only on a module meant for Xperia. Does it not exist for us?

Thanks,

Gods

There is one and if you search the nexus 5 Q&A or themes and apps section, you'll find it

The transparent bottom and top are launcher specific. Most of the launchers are going to it now. If that is what you are asking? Otherwise it would look funny for the top and bottom to be transparent when in an app

Thanks for the replies. As I've said I've looked around a lot. Otherwise I wouldn't be posting.

I do mean in-app. I get it in the launcher.

Thanks

Apps have to enable transparency themselves, it is possible, and I think it would be a nice touch for Facebook, etc. Project hera and 4.5/5.0 is coming up so just wait and see what happens.

For now, there is no way to make in app status and navbar transparent.

Nice touch. I wish more apps used translucent decor and transparency. If the status bar changed colors as project Hera says, and navbar stays transparent, that be nice.
