A few months ago, yes, but I don't need it all that often. I know the Dock is 
supposed to be how you get at Handoff, but I've not found that to be the case. 
Instead, cmd-tab lets me access an offered Handoff session. As I said, though, 
I don't often use it simply because I normally complete what I'm doing on the 
platform on which I began, so I have little need. I therefore don't know how 
reliable it really is.
