up to three minutes long.Navarra posted a screenshot of the update on Twitter and noted that the feature is still in the early stages of access. The Verge contacted TikTok for more information, but the social network was unable to comment quickly.

While TikTok allows all usersupload videos up to a minute long. The researchers noted that it is this limitation that makes the social network attractive. According to them, users are not required to stay on one video for more than a minute and can easily flip through the video if they are tired of it.

Navarra added that the three-minute videos on TikTokremind him of a miniature copy of YouTube, when the platform allowed content to be posted there in less than 10 minutes. In his opinion, this could lead to the fact that other genres of video appear on TikTok - trailers, educational materials and other content that is more often found on YouTube.
