Neurogadget noted that a “new vibration pattern concept” and an advanced power mode are incorporated along with new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google has included new features such as Doze Mode and App Standby. Reports suggest that these new features would improve the battery life and enhance Google Now on Tap features.
