Android Marshmallow Best Features

Android Pay

With the arrival of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, Google is revamping its own mobile payment service it actually introduced back in 2010 with Android Gingerbread. Compatible with phones running on Android KitKat and above, Android Pay will let you walk into stores and tap on an NFC terminal to pay for products.
Compatible with any device featuring NFC capabilities (and running 4.4 KitKat or above), the Android Pay platform is being supported by American Express, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover, as well as carriers such as AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. Google's response to Apple Pay is here.

Charging And Battery

We all hate running out of battery. So, now Android Marshmallow has eased our pain by making use of a new function called 'Doze' to improve device standby time. By using detectors and sensors, Your phone will recognize when a device hasn’t been interacted with for a while, such as when a person is asleep or a phone has been left on a table, and will reduce background processes.
Its said that, Google has tested two Nexus 9 devices, one running Lollipop and one running the Android M preview, and learned that Android M will provide up to twice as much standby time. Even in Doze mode, though, Android can still start alarms or notify you of priority notifications.

App Permissions

As had previously been speculated, app permissions have been overhauled in Android M, and you can now choose to accept or deny individual permissions as you see fit. User will have the right to accept or deny the permissions given to the app.
"You don't have to agree to permissions that don't make sense to you," Burke said, and used WhatsApp to give an example of how this works. If you want to record a voice message, WhatsApp will prompt you with a one-time request for permission to use your mic: if you still wish to give it access and record the message, you can, but you don't have to. In this way, Android M is giving you greater control of the information apps can access, and this is a truly positive step forward for Android. 

Web Experience

Google has introduced a new concept of Custom tabs in Chrome in Android 6.0 which will provide you faster accessibility.
These Chrome Custom Tabs will allow apps to open a customized Chrome window on top of the active app, instead of launching the Chrome app separately. It has been said that  this will provide a faster and more intuitive user-experience when navigating between apps and the web. 

Expanded Memory

This is a great feature in Android. Adoptable Storage Devices is Google's new storage feature which essentially takes an external storage source,for example - sd card, and formats it like an internal storage space. This means that app can be installde don the sd card as well and personal data can be moved freely between a devices internal storage and its 'adopted' storage source.
Earlier only users had to root the devices to enjoy these benefits but now google has provided its solution to the users.
