Google Going Child Friendly

It is being reported that Google are working on child friendly versions of its sites such as Search, YouTube and Chrome as Google engineer Pavni Diwanji revealed in an interview. The new versions of these Google services would be designed for children up to 12 years old. The idea is that if a child is searching for something like “Cars” then the Google search would feature things like the Cars cartoon rather than actual motor vehicles.

Diwanji told USA Today “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,” she added, “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.”

There has been no release date provided for when these services will be live, but it will probably be not too far away.
