When will Stadia Controllers support apostrophes in wireless PSKs?

Worked with the Stadia Twitter account and determined/tested the reason the controller won’t connect to WiFi, but the Chromecast and every other device can is the use of apostrophes in the PSK. That was over 5 weeks ago. Still no update. Does anyone know when this will be remedied and how to pause your pro subscription as my Stadia account has been unused for 5 weeks as a result.

It’s also worth remembering that this is all because of a bug Google tried to educate developers about 13 years ago (escaping and sanitising user input correctly): https://google-gruyere.appspot.com/part2#2__cross_site_scripting As a developer things like this (no escaping strings correctly) strikes as sloppiness and potential for vulnerabilities. There really is no excuse for this to have not been patched as soon as demonstrated.
