TikTok is popular for its short videos. The company started it with 15 second videos and later the video limit was increased to 1 minute. Recently, considering the demand, the limit was again revised to 3 minutes and later to 10 minutes. Let us tell you that before this the company is also testing for 15 minute video, although it has not been released on the platform yet. Now the company is working on a video limit of 30 minutes.
New facility for TikTok users
TikTok To bring more users and content creators to its platform, it is testing a 30-minute limit. Thus, it is being seen as a direct competition to YouTube which provides the facility of video upload with no limits. With this expansion, full episodes of TV shows and any kind of long-form content can be posted on TikTok.
TikTok, being a popular platform for its short videos, will allow users to fast forward the video by tapping and holding on the right side of the video. A similar feature was seen when TikTok introduced 15-minute videos a few months ago. Additionally, TikTok has already prepared for longer videos by recently introducing horizontal full-screen mode. Now it remains to be seen how much users like long videos on this platform which is already popular for short videos. At present it is not known when this feature will be launched for users.
