1. TikTok is considering testing 15-minute-long videos, which would be a significant increase from its current maximum video length of 10 minutes.
2. TikTok’s longer-form video focus is part of its newer revenue program, which aims to generate revenue from longer and higher-quality content.
3. The information about the potential increase in video length is currently leaked and not confirmed by the company.
4. A screenshot from a user on Threads platform shows a possible TikTok update mentioning the ability to upload videos up to 15 minutes long, but it is uncertain if this update will be implemented.
TikTok Testing 15-Minute-Long Videos
TikTok, the dominant short-form video platform, may be expanding its video length to 15 minutes, according to a recent report. Currently, TikTok offers the longest videos among short-form platforms, with a maximum of 10 minutes. Surprisingly, YouTube Shorts, which allows for longer videos, has shorter video limits than TikTok.
While TikTok is known for its short video format, the company is now focused on promoting longer-form, higher-quality content as part of its new revenue program. To start earning money from their videos, users will need to create longer content.
Although this information is still unofficial, leaked reports suggest that TikTok may increase its maximum video length by 50% to reach 15 minutes. While this may seem short compared to the possibility of uploading 10-hour-long videos on YouTube, it is relatively long for the short-form video scene.
Screenshots shared on Twitter by @mattnavarra show a potential TikTok update, mentioning the ability to upload videos up to 15 minutes. However, it is unclear whether TikTok will actually implement this feature, as there has been no official confirmation from the company.
For now, we can only wait for TikTok to confirm or deny this leak and see if 15-minute-long TikToks become a reality in the future.
