What has Google Done Wrong with Android?

Google is reportedly under investigation by the FTC because of Android. What did Google do?

Is Google in trouble with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over its Android practices? If the report on Bloomberg is true, then yes. Bloomberg reports that people familiar with the matter said that the FTC and the Justice Department are working on an investigation. 

The FTC has met with technology companies who accuse Google of giving priority to its own services on the Android platform. 

The investigation is still in its early stages and can fizzle into nothing. 

Google is offering its services on Android. Most of these services are free. A technology company offering a competing service to a Google service has a hard time of making a business. To make an antitrust case out of this situation will be difficult. So what has Google done wrong with Android? It is not clear yet what exactly the FTC is trying to find with this investigation.

Google faces scrutiny from several fronts. The European Union is also investigating Android, after Microsoft, Expedia and Nokia have complained. The EU is also gunning for Google over its search engine.
