One of TikTok’s appealing features is the ability to upload short videos to the platform, which means that users can watch multiple videos quickly and easily that gets to the point. The idea, presumably, is to drive consumption and engagement where users won’t get bored by watching videos that drag on for too long.
At the same time, some users probably can appreciate being able to upload longer videos, and the good news is that if you use TikTok frequently, longer videos could soon be headed your way. This is according to a tweet by Matt Navarra who discovered that TikTok is now testing out the ability for users to upload longer form videos of up to 3 minutes in length.
According to Navarra’s tweet, it seems that this feature is in early access so not all users will be able to take advantage of it now. It also notes that this feature will be available on both the app and desktop, which is a nice touch. We’re not sure when (or if) TikTok plans to roll out the feature to all of its users, but it could be worth keeping an eye out for.
That being said, while this is good news for users of the app, we should remind you that TikTok’s fate in the US still hangs in the balance. While the decision to ban the app has been delayed, the company isn’t off the hook yet so while it is a nice feature to have, users in the US might want to temper their expectations for now.
