as of 9/2/2017 this is not fixed. It is still not possible to sync any updated or new contacts back to hotmail.com account added as an exchagne account in outlook for android.

can you fix it so that contacts entered into the phone's contact app sync to the outlook app and the contacts in outlook.com? at present that does seem to happen on my android, and i think I was able to do that on my iPhone
