I don't have a 5D4, nor have I used one, but doesn't it have a face recognition mode? If so, and your subject is a face, I bet it's possible that way.

It does, and it even detects the eye (in LV).

You do not even need to use it as a phone. Compose through the VF as usual, then quickly press the LV button and fire without taking the camera off your face. There will be a short blackout and the 5D4 will focus on the eye.
