TikTok is set to challenge YouTube’s supremacy by introducing 30-minute long-form videos. Social media consultant Matt Navarra has uncovered that TikTok is currently testing this feature in beta versions for both iOS and Android, signaling an imminent global rollout.

Originally renowned for its short-form video format, TikTok has progressively expanded its maximum video length, starting from a 15-second limit and gradually moving to 1 minute, 3 minutes, and most recently, 10 minutes. In October of the previous year, the platform began experimenting with a 15-minute video upload limit.

The anticipated introduction of 30-minute long-form videos is poised to be a game-changer for content creators and businesses on TikTok. This shift eliminates the need for creators to break their content into shorter videos for posting, offering a more seamless and comprehensive storytelling experience.

From a business perspective, this strategic move by TikTok is expected to enhance its monetization and revenue-sharing potential. With longer videos, creators can incorporate more pre and mid-roll ads, and the resulting revenue will be directly shared with the content creators.

However, there is speculation about how well this shift will be received by TikTok’s user base, accustomed to the platform’s short-form content. The brevity of TikTok videos has been both praised for its creativity within constraints and criticized for limiting depth and substance.

As a Chinese-owned platform, TikTok has outshone its competitors in terms of popularity, thanks in no small part to its groundbreaking algorithm. The introduction of short-form videos on TikTok has revolutionized the social media landscape, garnering widespread adoption globally.

In response to TikTok’s success, competitors such as YouTube introduced Shorts, while Instagram and Facebook launched Reels to compete in the short-form video space. Now, with the introduction of 30-minute long-form videos, TikTok is poised to challenge YouTube’s stronghold in the longer video content domain, potentially reshaping the dynamics of online video consumption.
