    what is the main difference between home sharing and icml.

    I don't use home sharing just icloud music library

    Is it correct to say if your family doesn't use iTunes and I just use and listen to my own library that home sharing is pretty useless as iCloud music library puts all your songs on all devices. Thus eliminating the need for home sharing

    Please help

    Right, but you need to download (or stream) the music with iCloud Music Library. With Home Sharing, you get it across your local network. But in your case, it doesn't add anything.
