Google plans to roll out child-friendly versions of its most popular products in a bid to be "fun and safe for children," Pavni Diwanji, Google's vice president of engineering, told USA Today. The tech giant will likely create specific versions of its search, YouTube and Chrome products for children aged 12 and under, USA Today reported, adding that Google did not provide a timeline for the rollout. "We want to be thoughtful about what we do, giving parents the right tools to oversee their kids' use of our products," Diwanji told USA Today. A Google spokesperson, reached by NBC News, declined to offer additional details "beyond what's ​in ​the USA Today piece."
