A short video how to switch or activate the "Cold" or "Normal" Battery heater mode after Mazda update AM036A is done.
The "Cold Mode" activates the battery heater from between 5-10 ° C, the time for fast charging is shortened by about 55 minutes from SOC 20% to 80% at -10 ° C.
To activate the "Cold Mode" follow below steps:
1. Switch ON Power 2x without pressing brake pedal to READY OFF mode
2. Move / check the gear selector to the P position.
3. Hold down the pedals and perform the following steps within 10 seconds !(the pedals should be depressed throughout the process until step 7).
4. Press the minus button on the Left steering paddle (-) three times.
5. Press the plus button on the Right steering wheel paddle (+) three times
6. Press the minus button on the Left steering paddle (-) three times.
7. Press the plus button on the Right steering wheel paddle (+) three times.
8. Release the pedals.
9. "EV system warning light" flashes 4 times when the changeover has been carried out correctly.
10. Switch OFF the Power .

To activate the "Normal Mode" once the cold mode activated just follow the above steps and monitor "EV system warning light" flashes twice !

Couldn't they just have an option in the Infotainment system settings menu?

One would hope, as not only is this method extremely awkward , it doesn't appear to provide any feedback as to which mode the car is currently running in!
I totally agree! Although I think kopaszkrapek gives a hint at the end of the described procedure:

"9. "EV system warning light" flashes 4 times when the changeover has been carried out correctly.
10. Switch OFF the Power .

To activate the "Normal Mode" once the cold mode activated just follow the above steps and monitor "EV system warning light" flashes twice !

But of course; Mazda should make the whole procedure much more simple.
