As in case of all calls made on Duo, video messages are secure and end-to-end encrypted. Also, users can save their favorite videos locally to their phone. " After a countdown that lasts for 3 seconds, record your message, and then tap to stop once you are done".

So it will be safe to say that presently this feature will only be available in Canada right now. The video calling app was announced along with Google's chat app Allo.
