My contacts are all stored in an outlook.com account and I would like to continue storing them there. To access and use these contacts (say to make a phone call), from my Google Pixel device, I have my outlook.com account added to the phone settings > accounts.
This works as it should. All my outlook accounts are accessible from my phone.
When I want to create and save a new contact, the options exist to create the contact from Google's Phone App and the Contacts App. When I click save, to save the contact, the contact doesn't get saved. No indication is given that the contact is not saved. Only when I check my list of contacts do I know the contact is not saved.
Is there any other way to save a contact to outlook.com from an android device? Alternatively, does the above method I use to save contacts from Google's phone or contacts app work for any one else?
The current workaround I use is to visit the outlook.com website using a web browser, and then create and save new contacts. When Android periodically syncs the contacts, I get to see the new contacts on my phone. This workaround usually works better if the desktop version of outlook.com is used. The mobile version is not very friendly for saving new contacts to outlook.com.
