If you somehow can mount the cloud as a part of the file system (as, for example, One drives does) then, yes. If that's not possible, then no.

google, onedrive, etc uses a directory on the hard drive to sync everything to the cloud.
its under the user dir, could he exclude that dir from his backup, then drop his backup to that dir then google would sync it to the cloud.
he just needs to be aware to the space he has on google vs backup size.
