I recently found the verb berichten which, if I am not wrong, mainly is used to express to report something to someone, in a sort of official way.
Then I also found that berichten can be used like erzählen, telling something to someone.
I was wondering about the difference in connotation and usage of these two verbs.
I guess that erzählen is more used, but how would it sound if instead I would use berichten?
Ich habe ihm alles erzählt.
Ich habe ihm alles berichtet.
