Well they kinda do already. We use them for storing a database system for an app that was developed. Due to the minimal usage, the cost is actually free (similar to how AWS is setup).
The first F1-Micro site on Google Cloud is free. So as long as you don't need more than 0.6MB of memory, and have minimal traffic, you're good to go.
You can also use their App Engine which you can deploy WordPress directly on Google App Engine, and it's free. We've utilized this for testing environments before too. The only downside is that you must have a LOCAL copy of WordPress also as Google's App Engine doesn't allow you to install plugins, only upload files. So you install the plugin locally, then re-sync your local copy with Google and you're off and running.
This launched a few years ago too (2012/2013 I think). It was a big scare in the hosting world s Google was going to take over everything hosting related (which they seem to still be staying on the Enterprise fence).
