This gives you a good way to measure each others’ performance when guessing the word at hand. Use the guide below to play Wordle with your friends and family.

Is WordleTogether the same as Wordle?
No, sadly Wordle Together is a new beast altogether developed by Mihir Patil, a community contributor to help people with the growing craze of Wordle. The game does try to be true to the original while keeping all the aesthetics but sadly the list of words as well as the word choosing algorithm is not as up to par as you would expect. Niche words seem to be the norm in the game which can sometimes throw players off.
Needless to say, it has only been a few days since the website was made active. We can expect things to get better as the developer optimizes it for better gameplay in the coming days.
