How Long Can GoPro Quik Videos Be?

The Quik app is easy to install and can be used with all GoPro devices. When you are using the Quik for Desktop, the edit time is limited to one minute (60 seconds). If you want a video of longer length, there are multiple other apps available in the market to choose from. The Quik for mobile application, however, has a maximum duration that is equivalent to the maximum duration of the song chosen. As the preloaded songs restrict the capabilities of the Quik Desktop app, hence the Quik app restricts video editing to one minute.
