I tried android:scaleType="centerCrop" and fitXY and others also but it not responding. In attached image violet color represents empty space that occupied. I need that spaces need to occupied with the background image. Here is my code.

Answer

In ConstraintLayout, if you want to make width & height fit to parents, there are two options.

1.Within layout_constraint attrs, you need to set 0dp on layout_width & layout_height

<ImageView
        android:id="@+id/application_ads_image"
        android:layout_width="0dp"
        android:layout_height="0dp"
        android:scaleType="fitXY"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

2.If you set match_parent, you don’t need to set layout_constraint. If set, it will effect just like wrap_content

<ImageView
        android:id="@+id/application_ads_image"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:scaleType="fitXY"
        android:src="@mipmap/ic_launcher"/>

I write a sample for you, you can check the result like this
