    Voice-controlled assistants by Amazon, Apple and Google could be hijacked by ultrasonic audio commands that humans cannot hear, research suggests.

    Two teams said the assistants responded to commands broadcast at high frequencies that can be heard by dolphins but are inaudible to humans.

    They were able to make smartphones dial phone numbers and visit rogue websites.

    Google told the BBC it was investigating the claims presented in the research.
