Searching the site I found this:

There is no single page for tracking features, usually its handled via 

The answer is not yet.  I believe that Gtalk uses libjingle for voice 
and file transfers and since Pidgin does not support that yet, you are 
out of luck.  An ideal solution would be for Gtalk to use the standard 
xmpp file transfer as a fall back.
