TikTok to introduce option for longer videos

Friday 2 July 2021 | 09:07 CET | News
Chinese video-sharing app TikTok, famous for its videos from 15 to 60 seconds long, said it plans to soon introduce an option for longer videos. The company said the option, for up to three minutes of video in length, will give more time for creators to make new or expanded types of content on the video service. The option will be rolled out over the coming weeks.
