TikTok is testing 60-minute video uploads

I did not see this coming, and I am not sure most people did. TikTok is reportedly testing 60-minute-long video uploads.

Apparently, TikTok believes some of its users will be interested in watching videos that last up to 60 minutes on its platform, and that might just be the reason behind this latest test.

As posted by social media commentator Matt Navarra, TikTok is testing longer videos.

TikTok has consistently increased its video length in the last couple of years from 15 seconds to 60 seconds, 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, and now 60 minutes (not confirmed yet).

Given that TikTok will be able to share any earnings with content creators, this might potentially result in increased income for them.

Providing a method for users to stay captivated for extended periods of time could be a wonderful approach for TikTok to begin fulfilling its ambition of being the next big thing in online entertainment.

Has the table really turned? Now, it seems TikTok is the app copying features from Instagram! TikTok is reportedly testing a new collaboration feature within the app.

According to a screenshot shared by Radu Onescu, the new feature will enable you to tag collaborators on a post, which will then link their profiles to your post.

Creators, according to The SpAndroid, will be able to do the following with the new collaboration feature:

  • As a creator, you will be able to invite up to five other creators to make a collaboration post
  • You will be asked to approve collaborator listings, as well as have the right to decline those you do not want to be included on
  • You will also be able to remove yourself as collaborator retrospectively
  • Collaborator posts will appear on the creator and collaborator profiles, though only the creator will be able to edit the post
  • You will be able to invite people to collaborate on a post up to four times each month

This might be a significant TikTok addition. It will expand your reach within the app and give you another method to interact with a specific audience.

Regarding the new function from TikTok, there has been no formal word. Having said that, it might not be a terrible idea to include a collaborative element.
