Is it possible to stop users downloading app versions of sites ie youtube on chrome?

If so can this be done via intune?

I think this is on Windows (not for iOS or Android) right? Do you really want to stop the download or is stopping installation also an option, you can have a look at this:


There also options to only allow installation of Microsoft Store apps, see this:

Looks like Chrome webstore extensions to me. Have you tried blocking the installation of extensions using Intune settings catalog?

As you can see it blocks extensions however installing apps still works:
