Angular filter on a single string array

I am looking at the example of angular material filter

however I edited so it only display one column in my example here

https://stackblitz.com/edit/angular-w6nxqd

the filter do not work when i pass the data source as a string[] for some reason

is this not meant to work with string [] and I must have a define class ?
