Full Screen without navigation & status bars

I want to create a activity with full screen. Nothing on above like Notification Bar and nothing below like Home-Button etc.I am able to get this, but also wanted to remove below home-button bar:

enter image description here

This is my code.

<style name="MyScreen" parent="@style/Theme.AppCompat.Light">
<item name="windowNoTitle">true</item>
<item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
<item name="android:windowFullscreen">true</item>
<item name="android:windowContentOverlay">@null</item>

// This snippet hides the system bars.
private void hideSystemUI() {

    // doesn't resize when the system bars hide and show.
            | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_HIDE_NAVIGATION // hide nav bar
            | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_FULLSCREEN // hide status bar
            | View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_IMMERSIVE);

// This snippet shows the system bars. It does this by removing all the flags
// except for the ones that make the content appear under the system bars.
private void showSystemUI() {
