Companion following ability

I used to put companion on my phone when riding zwift on my computer and I set it to ‘Follow zwifters’. What it did was follow me and track who was around me/passed me/dropped behind me and to these people I commonly gave ‘Ride On’s’ to. Today when I did this during a ride the ability was not there. Instead it tracked EVERYONE in Watopia regardless if they were around me…and I couldn’t even find myself within the list to see if I could then track people around me.

What gives? Is this ability no longer present?
