I asked the weconnect team a while back and here is the answer:

The dynamic background lighting is the functional ambient lighting. This extension of the basic ambient lighting include warnings or information for the driver are displayed via colour signals and ambient lighting. Functions can be visualised in colour, e.g:

- Staging locking/unlocking.
- Acceleration visualisation in sports mode.
- Visualisation of child safety lock and window regulator lock.
- Feedback open door while driving.
- Display of hazard warning flashing on ambient lights.

We would also like to inform you that the Ambient Lighting Effect (Additional Functions) has additional features e.g. showing the acceleration via the ambient light.
Dynamic Background Lighting expands basic background lighting to include intuitive display of various functions. Depending on equipment, this includes warnings and information such as the acceleration indicator or door warning.

I dont find it. What is the model exaclty? Thanks! But why Seat have this function and Golf Mk8 not? 😅
Presumably it’s the current model Leon - the mk4.

IMHO, it’s not that unusual for equivalent models (Golf, Leon A3, Octavia) under the different VAG brands to have different features and functions, as the customer profile for each respective brand - and what those customers consider to be important in a vehicle - is likely to be different.

Thanks! Yes but, the newests Golf have this function and I think that another VW like T-roc have it too, and the information in weconnect service is that VW wants to upgrade all the Golf models software and hardware to fix this function, is you know something about this told me please! Hah

This function was actually available to all Golf 8 this time last year and was removed a few weeks later because it was not working properly. At the time the weconnect team said the software/hardware of the My20/21 Golf 8 were not compatible, while My22 were compatible. I would guess with the big software updates it is possible that they could add the functionality to the My20/21 again.
