NeoChat does work on mac but more help on it would be welcome :) The NeoChat
matrix channel can be found here: #neochat:kde.org :)

Also if NeoChat is not to your liking https://matrix.org/clients/ list a
few more native clients. 6 of them are written with Qt (Nheko is the most
advanced and has working encryption and video chat) and there is also a
native mac client (no idea how good it is) and fluffychat written in Flutter.

I hope it helps.
