Elizabeth Warren wants regulators to look into big tech's expansion into the automotive space.

Warren says all three companies are using their position in cloud and mobile  computing to become dominant players in the industry. 

This expansion has potentially alarming implications for developers, workers and consumers,” Warren says. 

Urge FTC Chair Lina Khan  Jonathan Kanter,  head of the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, to act decisively before it's too late. 

As an example, he refers to the terms  Android Automotive. Google's operating system

does not come with Maps or Assistant. To access any of these services, automakers must purchase a package that includes them all. 

Warren argues that such a tactic allows Google to leverage its dominance in one area to gain market share in another.

In this particular case, it suggests the company is using Maps to extend Assistant. 

At Google, our goal is to enable automakers and developers in the automotive industry to create software solutions at scale.
