How can I capture Bluetooth packets without any dongle by macOS?

I want to capture Bluetooth packets like PacketLogger.

Some article says Wireshark needs a dongle to capture Bluetooth packets. However, MacBook has own receiver and it enables MacBook to use BlueTooth.

I want to choose the native capture interface, but I cannot find it ( or do not know the correct name)

How can I capture Bluetooth packets by my MacBook?


  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)
  • macOS Catalina(10.15)
  • Wireshark 3.0.5, installed by Homebrew cask
