1. For the first time, two stoves are being installed at the Sistine Chapel for the conclave, one to burn ballots, the other to produce smoke.
During conclave there is only one “smoke signal” each morning and afternoon. If the first round of voting on a given morning or afternoon is successful (i.e., a pope is elected) then the white smoke will appear earlier.

White Smoke: a pope has been chosen (main bells at St. Peter’s Basilica will also be rung)

Black Smoke: no pope chosen
