According to TikTok, some creators were already allowed to create longer videos as part of a company experiment but soon this option will be available to everyone.
"Over the coming weeks, we’ll be rolling out the option to create longer videos to everyone on TikTok, giving our global community the flexibility to film, upload, and edit videos up to three minutes in length directly within TikTok. Once ready, you'll get a notification that longer videos are now part of your creative toolbox," the social media company said in a statement.
TikTok is an app for creating and watching short videos, developed by ByteDance. It reportedly has around one billion users in over 150 countries.
