Sony A7R4 settings help needed

I just got my A7R4 and i can't get to work the Real Time Tracking with subject detection in Animal Mode. It only works with Humans.

I think there is a autofocus feature where the camera detects a cat or dog or bigcats body then head then eyes.

Like this video-

watch at 22:20 (He's using Real Time Tracking flexible spot small)

Animal eye autofocus working with real time tracking but i can't get it to work on my A7R4.

I currently using Animal Eye AF with Flexible  Spot Small or Medium. But i need to move the focus point with the joystick just like a DSLR.

In wide or zone it mostly tracks the neck region when eye not properly visible.

I would be a bit disappointed if its only a A9 series feature but its just a bonus feature, would have helped if it was there in A7R4.

I thought the A7R4 and A9ii has same autofocus features with the A7R4 being slower than the A9ii but gives more resolution.

Thank You
