Now on Tap*
Now on Tap provides instant information, anticipating what you need in the moment.
With a simple tap, you can get cards with useful information and apps that feed your need to know. For example, if you open up the Calendar app and it has an appointment to meet at a Museum, just hold the home button and information about the Museum will be available to peruse. Once done, you'll go back to the Calendar app.
*Now on Tap is supported in English only. To change the language on your device, open Settings from the apps tray and scroll down to Language & input.
Doze mode optimizes your battery when you're not using your phone.
To customize Doze mode:
Selecting All apps optimizes Doze across the board.
App Standby puts your seldom-used apps into a reduced activity state, minimizing battery drain. You can choose which apps are applicable to App Standby.
It's a new feature to protect your privacy. Certain apps will now request your permission to use features on the phone.
For example, when using an app that needs access to your Contacts, you'll see a pop-up requesting access, as shown below.

Do not disturb
You can easily configure interruptions by tapping the Do not disturb button in the quick settings panel. There are 3 different options:
The new Do not disturb feature also allows multiple automatic rules by time or event. You can also decide which apps are treated as priority. Notifications from these apps will go off in "Priority only" mode.
Android Marshmallow provides a clean and intuitive way to control the volume for your ringtones, media and alarms. Just press and hold the side volume keys to adjust your ringtone volume, then tap the down arrow in the volume slider that appears at the top of your screen to adjust the media and alarm volume.
To mute your phone when Do not disturb mode isn't enabled, and the phone volume is set to vibrate, press the volume down button again to activate Alarms only mode. You won't be interrupted by calls, emails and other notifications, but your alarms will still go off.
Direct Share* is a new feature in Android Marshmallow that enables sharing directly to a contact or conversation within an app. Tap the share icon in the app and at the top of the share panel to see a list of contacts with app icons next to their names. Then just pick the contact and hit Send.
*Note that Direct Share needs to be enabled by the developers of each app.

Android Marshmallow has integrated Attentive Display into Moto Actions. To disable or enable Attentive Display, open the Moto app, tap Actions, then tap Attentive Display.
Attentive Display runs in battery saver mode, automatically dimming your screen when you're not looking at it.
