Can't see playlist followers in new Spotify version

In the new version of Spotify, playlists list the number of followers each playlist has, but not who is following it. In the previous version there were thumbnails of three followers, but there was no way to see more (very annoying). Now it seems that you can't see the identities of anyone following your playlists. Am I missing something here?

Yep it's gone but those three pictures didn't add much value really.

True. The move from bad to worse is frustrating though. For what's supposed to be a soical experience, why is it impossible to see who follows your playlists?

If I remember, when they removed the ability to look at followers, the explanation was that the function was seriously broken by playlists with thousands of followers. Maybe they'll bring it back one of these days.

They should at least do a temporary quick fix for basic users:

if ( user.followers.length > 1000 ) do whatever bs they're doing now;
else display( user.followers ).

C'mon Spotify.
