A7III af beam

I have just got the A7iii, when used with the Godox V1 the Red Af assist beam works amazing at helping the camera focus. In the dark, on a plain white wall with the beam, no problem without it, not a hope.  The problem I have, the camera decides when to use the beam, so if it feels it's light enough it will not fire the AF assist beam. Is there any way to have the beam always fire when a flash is attached.  It's very frustrating having a camera struggle in low light knowing the beam would make a world of difference.

Having just come from Canon this is not a problem I've had before.
