Default Basic feature missing?

Voice dialing over Bluetooth seems to be missing in the D855.

Its a feature that many people use daily and not being included really is a disappointment for a phone built in 2014.

Does anyone know of a way to get this working?

Because Samsung use their own software for this, its not actually built into Android itself.
I am some sort of dev and a writer for LandofDroid. I am also a member of HTC Elevate. Was a member of the now defunct "Team Villain" aka VillainRom.

Have you tried ticking the "Record audio through Bluetooth headset if available" under Language & Input in General Settings

Yes have ticked that option. Currently trying numerous apps on the market but so far no luck. Double pressing headset button redails last number as it should but single press of button for 2 beeps still does nothing, which is strange because it works on every other phone I I have tried eg Nexus 5, Note 3, even cheap chinese knock offs.

I can voice dial with my Bose freestyle ear buds long pressing the play /pause button via Google now so Bluetooth should work just fine. My car has its own system so I can't tell you if it works via Bluetooth but I know Google now always does. Have you set up Google now everywhere yet?

I had the F400S until it fell off my balcony. I'm waiting to get a new one.
