    From Computerworld:

    "Apple's "Handoff" -- one of the key new features of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite -- will work only on newer Macs that support Bluetooth 4.0 and the Bluetooth LE (low energy) technology, according to an Apple engineering manager.

    While Apple didn't mention Handoff requirements when it unveiled the feature at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this month, a developer-only session there made it clear that Bluetooth LE is necessary.
    "


    My Mid 2011 Macbook Air 13" has Bluetooth LE support, however, in the systems information under Bluetooth, it shows the following:

    Bluetooth Low Energy Supported: Yes
    Handoff Supported: No
    Instant Hotspot Supported: No

    So no Handoff or Instant Hotspot for me apparently.

    I'm aware of the requirements, my computers both meet them. I had it working in previous OS X Yosemite betas, but with the final, it simply doesn't work. I have iOS 8.0.2 and handoff enabled on my iPhone but I tried using mail app or safari and even iwork apps and don't see the icon in my mac or iPhone at all.

    Quick guess:
    Did you enable iCloud drive on your iPhone iWork apps..?
    Only iCloud drive saved files would work with handoff...
