TikTok can upload videos for a maximum of 10 minutes, which underscores the site’s continuous effort to compete with YouTube.
TikTok wants to continue to chase YouTube. While the Chinese platform has already established itself as a major service for short videos, now the app wants to extend it to longer formats as well. In fact, the Bite Dance service has begun testing 10-minute videos, currently exclusively for selected US creators. However, the goal is clear: aimed at delivering the longest and most complete videos possible, social networking is actually the content requested by users when 15-second videos are born.
Still online, all sites start on YouTube and always change to longer minutes, which now seems to have settled into 15-20 minute videos, perhaps a reflection of TikTok’s arrival (if you haven’t counted the effort in shorts), which today ranges from 1 to 3 minutes, which is currently loadable on the platform Is the maximum. In recent days, however, some users have warned of the possibility of uploading a maximum of 10 minutes of videos from TikTok, with one video still limited, but it looks like it will be coming to the world soon.
“We are constantly thinking of new ways to bring value to our community and enrich the TikTok experience,” said a spokesman for The Verge. “Last year, we introduced long videos, giving our community more time to create and enjoy on TikTok. Today, we are pleased to publish the ability to upload videos of up to 10 minutes, which we hope will open up new creative possibilities for users and our creators around the world.” An approach that clearly highlights one key aspect: Monetizing long content is easy. However, in this case, the operating system must figure out how to insert any ads (such as the mid-rolls that appear in the middle of the video on YouTube, for example) so as not to spoil the viewing experience too much.
