Yes definitely, in my examples the provider exposes a mechanism for updating the context value and the consumer components use that mechanism to update the context value. So yes, this is definitely supported.

 

Got it and thanks. Then for Redux, to modify the store's state, one action must be dispatched from View/Component. For new Context API, how to modify the context value? Any special restriction?

Well, if you were to put the redux store into the provider component, then it could expose the dispatch from the store for consumers and the provider could subscribe to updates and call setState on itself which would re-render and update the context value which would rerender subscribers.
