A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your company details, for example.
