Playhead scrolling in timeline

I’m talking about during playback, so that the timeline view follows the playhead and you don’t have to manually scroll all over the place trying to keep up with it or find where it’s landed after it goes out of view. Very frustrating problem to deal with when syncing animation in longer projects.
While searching for a way to do this I’ve seen threads on here of people requesting this feature for over a decade, it’s such a basic functionality of any audio/video based program it’s baffling to me why it hasn’t been implemented yet. Is there any sort of workaround for this missing feature that anyone’s figured out to make it less of a hassle?
