A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
