However, it doesn’t affect the long video streams because other topics need the long video size so almost every Tik Tok User has also had a YouTube Channel. By caring about it, Tik Tok is looking to prevent others from reaching out to other platforms and that’s why Tik Tok is testing the 30-minute-long video features.
