Best way to get a recording off an answering machine.

This is a bit of a strange one… I’ve got a several year old answering machine (It’s a Panasonic, and is digital, not one of the super old tape ones). Unfortunately, my dad passed away a couple of years ago, and I’ve been avoiding deleting the only message I have from him.
Any thoughts on the best way to capture the recording where I can make sure it’s saved? The handsets (which can play the messages) have Bluetooth for a headset or for linking to a phone (which I’ve never done).

does it have a 3.5mm or 1/4" output?

Unfortunately, it doesn't. 😦 I've been trying to figure out how I can get a high(ish) quality call recorded by calling the answering machine. Unfortunately, google voice only support call recording when you are called. I suppose I could try calling my google voice number with my iPhone, then do a second call and merge the calls with the answering machine.. but I'm guessing this will sound a bit.. lacking.

I had an answering machine that could playback to a handset with an rj11. So you could use an rj11 to trs adapter device if your answering machine could do that I saw a tutorial on YouTube where a guy soldered a trs Jack to a Google home mini’s speaker wire so he could use his own speakers. Idk. 🤷‍♂️
