Tested everything and everything is flawless, running GM 2, and 8.1 Beta 2 on an iPhone 6. The only think I'm trying to figure out is the hotspot feature. My laptop won't recognize my phone in the wifi drop down list.

I seem to have everything working but can't seem to hand off things like email/texts or web from my MBP to my iPhone 6 Plus. If I'm doing something on my iPhone (text, web, email) the icon pops up on the MBP (this is super cool!!!) but not the other way around. SMS is working on the MBP as well as incoming calls ring and work in the MBP. Is it a beta issue or not supported fully yet?

Running 8.1 Beta 2 and GM 2

With my phone, I have to wake it up and unlock it and then rescan the wifi drop down list for it to show up. I think it is a bug- Same for you?

All still flawless? I'm curious …
I really don't enjoy having to delete all of my text messages from my MBP, iPad, and iPhone. If I delete from one, I want it gone from all.

I also don't find the FaceTime missed voice calls very intuitive. I have to launch FaceTime, the camera turns on, and then I can see I missed a voice call. Just add the darn phone icon to the other devices. FaceTime audio is an oxymoron anyway.

In both cases, I have persistent notifications on all devices when the message or call has been answered. Cleaning up that mess isn't the best use of my time.
