One of the big difference between Android M and lollipop is that It comes with a feature where you can use your memory card as an internal memory.
Which means there is no application you can't move or install to your memory card instead of before where some applications will forcefully install on the main internal memory.

Though the differences in Android M and Android Lollipop might not be much as expected but we should expect google to roll out huge update every year since they've decided to always release new android Update annually.
