Difference between All together and altogether

All together

All together is a phrase applied to people or things that are being treated as a whole.

  1. We always had fun when we were all together.
  2. It’s time to sing. All together now!
  3. The last time we were all together was in 1999
  4. Put the bills all together on the desk

To double check this usage, try separating the two words:

  1. We all had fun when were together.
  2. It’s time for all of us to sing together now!
  3. The last time all of us were together was in 1999
  4. Put all the bills together on the desk


It is used to indicate something that encompasses everything or everyone.

Adverb and how it’s used?
