The question has already been answered in a previous question about Android M secret features.

However, I will just list out some of them again -
1. New Theme Mode - It will help you set dark or light theme on your phone.

2. New RAM manager - The newer version of RAM manager will help you find the RAM usage by each app, so that you can identify the rogue app and take actions.

3. Doze mode on per app basis - You can change which apps you want to be controlled by Doze feature.

4. Uninstall apps from homescreen - You can now uninstall an app from the home screen rather than going into the app drawer for the purpose.

I have listed only a couple of them here. Find more details in the link above.
