Granular Permissions Support: Apps installed in our smartphone access out data to perform a certain number of actions while some apps ask for the user permission before accessing while some don’t. With Android, M Google has introduced granular(a fancy word for default).
Native Fingerprint Support: Companies like Samsung, Motorola used to include the fingerprint sensor for their flagship or at least high-end smartphones but with Android M Google ‘s included the fingerprint sensor by default
Doze: Doze power charging feature Google is trying to improve the battery backup time and standby time significantly. Doze is a feature which makes use of Motion detector to measure your smartphone or tablet and if it’s kept idle for some time it shifts the mode to Doze which kills all background apps from performing any type of action except for the alarm and incoming notifications.
