Google is planning to introduce child-friendly versions of its products, including Chrome and YouTube, for children under 12 starting from next year.
The search giant has not revealed any specific date for the release of its new venture, but the executives noted that it is a part of the company’s recent kid-centric efforts, which includes Maker Camp, Made with Code initiative and the Doodle 4 Google competition.
USA Today reported Google engineering VP Pavni Diwanji as saying: "The big motivator inside the company is everyone is having kids, so there’s a push to change our products to be fun and safe for children."
"We expect this to be controversial, but the simple truth is kids already have the technology in schools and at home. So the better approach is to simply see to it that the tech is used in a better way."
