Is it possible to use a bluetooth adapter (usually BLE) with a Raspberry Pi Zero? I don't mean the one that comes with built in wireless and bluetooth, I mean the one without wireless. A bluetooth adapter/dongle like this one

  • My bad. I meant that raspberry pi zero that doesn't come with wireless.

You will need to make sure that the specific bluetooth adapter is supported though. An example list of supported bluetooth adapters is at https://elinux.org/RPi_USB_Bluetooth_adapters.
