    I don't yet have Apple Music, but have a huge collection available in the Cloud, and it plays music I didn't even know I owned. It's probably all there on my Mac in iTunes, but if you just say "Hey Siri, play music" it will randomly play everything in your collection if you leave it on long enough, as long as that music is all in the Cloud.

  • The Now Playing screen on your iPhone has an option to select the source output. HomePod will appear as a separate tile here. Tap that to select music for HomePod to play directly from the internet, rather than from your phone.

  • If you have an Apple Music subscription, yes. You can ask it to play pretty much anything.
