So here is the simple working solution of the above issue.

Just add android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark" to the toolbar in the layout.

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
 android:id="@+id/toolbar"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
 android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"
 app:popupTheme="@style/AppTheme.PopupOverlay"
 android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark"/>

This thing worked for me 😉

Hope it helps 😉

Happy Coding 🙂
