TikTok moves closer to YouTube with a new horizontal full-screen mode


TikTok is testing a new horizontal full screen mode with select users globally, the company confirmed to TechCrunch. For those users who have access to the test feature, square or rectangular videos in their feed will now include a new “full screen” button.

Users can now upload videos up to 10 minutes long on TikTok, which launched this year. It was believed that by making the change, TikTok would be able to draw the same kind of longer-form video creators who typically post their work on YouTube. It’s unclear when or if TikTok plans to make the full screen mode widely available to all users, as with any test feature.

It’s also important to keep in mind that the final version may differ from the test version if TikTok decides to formally release the feature.
