New TikTok Feature - Longer Videos
Yes, 3 minute videos really do exist on TikTok. Last December, social media consultant Matt Navarra shared that TikTok was testing videos with a length of up to 3 minutes.
The TikTok notification from December reads: "You have early access to uploading videos up to 3 minutes long on the Tik Tok app and desktop! To try it out, make sure your app is up-to-date and try uploading a video from your device (i.e., phone) or tiktok.com." Rumor has it that this longer video test has now been rolled out to more users.
How To Get 3 Minute Videos On TikTok
- Make sure TikTok is up to date in the app store.
- Open up your TikTok app and tap on the "+" symbol to start creating a new video.
- Toward the bottom of the screen, you should see three time options (15s, 60s, 3m) plus templates.
- Click on the "3m", this is short for three minutes.
- Last, upload your video footage and then create your TikTok video just like you normally would.
Do you have the ability to create a three minute video on TikTok yet? If not, keep an eye out for the notification.
