Based on the shared information, WhatsApp may have a new button to filter chats based on unread messages, personal conversations, and business conversations. This clearly indicates that the feature is aimed at accessing important chats in seconds while excluding the need for accessing the list of long chats.

However, at the moment, there is no trace of a dedicated filter for group chats. Having a filter to find all the group chats at a place would be a great way to access them all. The report suggests that WhatsApp may consider the development of this new filter in the future, however, there is no surety of it so far.

However, it may be available to more users in the coming days.
