messages – Is it possible to display unread iMessage count in the menu bar on macOS 11+

I’m aware that this used to be possible at one point or another, but I’m trying to find a solution specifically for Big Sur and up. I’ve recently decided to automatically hide my dock which unfortunately leads to forgetting that I’ve received text messages until hours later unless I open and respond to them immediately.

Is it possible, either within the system or through third-party software, to add an icon to the menu bar that indicates that there are unread messages in the stock Messages.app?
