Lumia 640 - handsfree interaction with cortana

Hi all, I would like to bring to your attention a missing feature on the new lumia phones,

Look at the video
youtube.com/watch?v=3HnqGDCprXI

Here you can see my humble lumia 525 with a wired headset (samsung), while driving, long pressing the volume button activates cortana, where i can issue commands to call or text someone without looking at the screen. or listen to music etc.

One of my reasons to buy my new 640 was this feature. but it seems all the new Lumia phones don't support this feature. I tried a friends 535, 730 to no avail.

Do you think this is an OS issue? both my 640 and 525 runs on latest denim update. is it a hardware feature which was limited to old lumia phones??

I'm I believe its still a thing. Have you tried another headset? Its possible the standards supported changed.
