        So, the blog referenced dated 2017/06/05 states that we can now edit and two-way sync contacts from the Outlook for Android app.... Strange though that I can't even add a new contact in the app let alone edit one. Is there a new version of the app coming?

        You can set the native Contacts Android app to sync w Outlook. But the fields are different than those in Outlook. Prefer to work directly in Outlook. I agree completely with other posters. Outlook on Windows phone 10 was Superior to the native Android and iOS apps on their respective phones - in MANY ways. But this Outlook for Android just doesn't measure up.

        We need a method of adding or updating contacts in the Outlook app for Android. If the contact is added directly to contacts in Android it disappears with a message stating the contact can't be saved. From within Outlook there is no method of either updating or adding contacts, unlike the iPhone version.

        It would be awesome if we could manage/add contacts in IMAP and also create groups.

        How can this outlook.com and the outlook app NOT BE ABLE TO edit/delete contacts? you would think that feature woild have been on the short list of "day one" items when building??

        i can't add contacts on my android when i receive an email but i can on the web version. very frustrating as known senders go to junk until i can get on a computer.

        unbelievable I have to go to a desktop to add a contact. this was a standard feature back when I had a black berry.
