Share Controller others than the own controller

The new Share Controller feature is great.

But I think it would be much more impressive if the streamer could share other controllers than the own one. It would allow to play co-op games through Mixer, a good reason to use Mixer as meeting center with friends for gaming sessions.

    I think it's meant to do that. Whenever I start controller sharing in Battlefront II classic, Splitscreen unlocks and it says two controllers are plugged in, but both still correspond to controller 1

    You can currently do this by
    1. Sharing controller 1 with mixer.
    2. Connecting a second controller to Xbox.
    3. Now a friend on mixer controls 1 and the broadcaster controls 2.
    4. Let the co-op begin.

    This would be mint. I just thought of this a few hours ago, but you beat me to it. It would mean literally any couch coop game would become an online coop game. Earth Defense Force 2017 is a split screen only game, would be transformed into an online coop game. Would be amazing.
