Can I use my private iTunes library on the HomePod?
I have over 500 Gb of music stored in my iTunes library on an external hard drive. Can this be played through the HomePod without having to jump through a bunch of hoops such as a separate phone app other than the Apple app. And if so can the songs be changed from the app?

Yes, it can, but you must complete “iTunes Match” first, so that your music is available in the cloud. Once you have done that, and the HomePod(s) are linked to the same Apple account as the iTunes Match, Siri can access your entire library and you can ask Siri to play certain songs, certain albums, to shuffle all songs, or songs of a specific genre, or a specific artist as well as any of your playlists. It’s really great!
