TikTok will soon have the option to upload horizontal videos. This information was confirmed by company representatives in a comment to TechCrunch.

Horizontal full-screen mode is currently being tested, which involves selected users from different countries. Test takers on square and rectangular videos in their feed will have a new button called “Full Screen Mode”. If you click on it, the video will be shown in horizontal full-screen mode, which is characterized by increased functionality.

The publication notes that the innovation of TikTok ” steps on the heels” of YouTube. This is not the first such step of the company. Previously, TikTok introduced the ability to upload videos up to 10 minutes long.
