As per the screenshot shared by XDA, the filter button appears next to the search bar. When you click on it, WhatsApp would hide all the read chats and shows you all the unread ones.

In addition, WhatsApp is working on a new desktop app for macOS. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a version of the app that uses the Mac Catalyst framework. It enables developers to develop iPad applications for macOS Monterrey directly.

The new app is expected to come to the App Store, unlike the WhatsApp desktop app which can be downloaded from the website directly. Unfortunately, the app is under development so it is not possible to download it from the App Store on your Mac at the moment and release date is currently unknown.

As per report, when you open WhatsApp for macOS for the first time, you need to link your phone by scanning the QR Code: you will be able to scan the QR code generated by WhatsApp for macOS right within WhatsApp Settings > Linked devices.

Users will also be able to link WhatsApp for Android to WhatsApp for macOS, so people do not need to switch to iOS if they are using WhatsApp on an Android device.
