    Hello @Olivier Manso ,

    Native Android only allows the text in the status banner to be grey or white.

    For Android 11 or later, you can open your MainActivity.cs under Platform->Android, then override OnCreate method , and find the window to set SystemBarsAppearance. For Android 6 to android 10, please use set SystemUiVisibility to change it. In addition, you can set StatusBarColor so that the items on the bar can be read clearly.

    protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)   
        { ...  
        Window.SetStatusBarColor(Android.Graphics.Color.Cyan);// change the  status bar color  
        if (Build.VERSION.SdkInt >= BuildVersionCodes.R)  
            Window.InsetsController?.SetSystemBarsAppearance((int)WindowInsetsControllerAppearance.LightStatusBars, (int)WindowInsetsControllerAppearance.LightStatusBars);  
        if (Build.VERSION.SdkInt >= BuildVersionCodes.M && Build.VERSION.SdkInt < BuildVersionCodes.R)  
            Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility = (StatusBarVisibility)SystemUiFlags.LightStatusBar;  

    Or you can do this in MainPage, please try using Microsoft.Maui.ApplicationModel, and find the Window by Platform.CurrentActivity.Window, then set SystemBarsAppearance

    #if ANDROID   
                  Platform.CurrentActivity.Window.SetStatusBarColor ....
