The most recent Zwift update (with the major home screen and/or UI change) has removed the ability to see my friends list on the main home screen. I use the feature all the time to join an out-of-state friend on rides using the “Ride With” feature. The feature I am referring to is outlined in the Zwift “Joining a Zwifter on a Ride” article (I can’t post links, but it’s the second hit if you google “ride with friends on zwift”).
This list of riders currently riding on a route no longer exists, so I cannot find my friend. The Zwift companion app also does not allow me to find my friend. I can find my friend’s profile and it says “Riding now,” but there is no option anywhere to join them on their current ride.
Am I missing something? I don’t see any way to view my friends list on the homes creen, and the Zwift companion app does not allow me to “Ride with” someone in progress. Why would this feature be removed? Please advise on how to join someone in the middle of their current ride.
Any idea of when we can use what we’re paying for again? I was so aggravated yesterday when I tried to join my friend and couldn’t. I can’t choose routes easily anymore either. All users should get a credit issued for the down time. Rouvy is one small click away.
This is beyond ridiculous. Probably the most used feature once we actually moved to Watopia and wanted to ride with friends… just deleted, because Zwift doesn’t actually use their own product and understand. Way to go Zwift. So stupid.
This is an option I used from time to time, Joining my friends for a spin. Now this things gone, Im really feeling disappointed. New UI is terrible, I prefer more compact solutions, with easy access to routes, workouts. Even I would come back to old UI if that would be an option. I can’t imagine navigate in that new UI for apple TV users.
Totally agree. This supposed update is a huge annoying step backward. Not being able to find your mate to ride is bloody poor. Seriously thinking about ceasing my Zwift Membership and going to the competition.
