    So I am trying to send computers straight to my computer via using Airdrop, but it won't work.

    I see my iPhone pop up on my mac but not vice versa, and if I click airplay nothing happens. I have wifi and bluetooth turned on and Airplay is set to share with everyone.

    Has anyone gotten it to work?

    I think it requires Yosemite on your Mac... which of course is still in beta.

    Yup!

    The good news is when I got a phone call tonight I was able to answer it on my MBP!

    I just tried using Airdrop form my 6 to my MBP and it appeared almost immediately. I would try disabling Airdrop on both your devices an reenabling.
