Answer

<EditText
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_margin="32dp"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:hint="Username"
        android:padding="16dp"
        android:background="@drawable/edittext_bg" />

edittext_bg.xml in drawables folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle">
    <solid android:color="#80ffffff" />
    <corners android:radius="5dp" />
</shape>

Change color value of <solid android:color="#80ffffff" /> to adjust transparency.
