A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your company details, for example.
