The ability to upload 60-minute videos marks TikTok’s departure from its initial format when users could post only 15-second videos. Over the past few years, TikTok has increased the limit on the length of uploaded videos, despite the service gaining popularity thanks to short videos. However, the service is gradually mastering longer-form content, aiming to compete with the largest video hosting sites such as YouTube, notes NIX Solutions.

New Opportunities for Content Creators

Content creators on TikTok can create stories from multiple videos, prompting users to skip ahead to watch the next parts, which can be somewhat inconvenient. The company mentioned that users often want to publish longer videos, for example, to demonstrate culinary skills, film comedy stories, and more. According to the developers, increasing the time for published videos will give content creators more opportunities to experiment and create new videos.

In addition, the ability to publish 60-minute videos will allow creators to publish episodes of multi-part shows on TikTok. This will help the platform compete even more actively with YouTube and other similar platforms. As TikTok explores these new features, we’ll keep you updated on any further developments.
